This project is a design of organization to articulate the relationship of part-to-part, part-to-external factor, part-to-cluster, and cluster to cluster. Beginning with an aggregation of equilateral triangles by mirroring, flipping or rotational direction along edges. Clusters containing new, dynamic arrangements of symmetrical responses to the central axis are formed. In addition to intentional subtraction at moments, alternating and eliminating primary and intermediate components. A huge matrix of spaces were formed and begin to suggest programmatic identifications: larger enclosures, subdivisions or cell-like spaces. These clusters are connected by a spine which serves as an interstitial circulation, eroding the regularity of the system. Individual triangular units are then expressed through different tectonic language and material, or become operable units which respond to external factors including sunlight and physical or visual connections to the context. The strategy of organization aims to articulate the relationship of part-to-part, part-to-external factor, part-to-cluster, and cluster to cluster.
