In response to Gillian Rose’s essay: Building a Restless World
Architecture as an Intervention:
In what territories are we designing, and how do these territories overlap with surrounding territories? What are the circumstances embedded within the territory? From culture, ecology, and… how do we translate these circumstances into issues in which we will address architecturally? These issues do not exist in isolation, but rather overlap, they are connected. What existing relationships can we define between them and what interaction do we wish to create/stimulate (think flows in the reading)?
Sometimes we need to stop and ask ourselves:
what are my goals?
why are these goals relevant in context?
how will I achieve these goals architecturally?

My chosen landscape generated from both spline studies and pastel contour drawings (North is up)
Spline studies investigating the generation of a pattern to create a landscape. How can a spline pattern be created to coordinate both human circulation and water flow? How is this pattern composed of both large and small orders? Where are these orders applied in relation to program composition?
