This thesis challenges two dimensional flatness to act as the primary driver of the formal and conceptual formwork for architecture production. It was my bias that I experience the world as a series of fragmented views. Each view contains the generative potential towards the production of architecture. This thesis operates as a methodology with develops composition as a catalyst for this production. The present architectural discourse is focused on volumetric production as a means of conceptual and formal generation. The architectural discourse is becoming increasingly homogenized through this volumetric object-based mode of production. This object-centric obsession has led to the degradation of artistic architectural invention while simultaneously reducing differences in conceptual identity.
