These compositions aim to study the effect of formal operations on canonized building typologies. The exercise begins with a standard building type (i.e. tower, courtyard, linear building, etc). Operations such as shearing, shifting, adding, subtracting and rotating are then used to yield transformed formal variants. Using a sequential method, three to five operations were combined to create new interpretations of type. The result is a series of entirely new forms which retain some memory of their parent type while establishing new variety and formal complexity.
