Development

2D Compositions evolved into Complex interlocking wood joints The Concept of transversal was present in all the iterations of the block, with each providing a motion in all three axes.

As you proceed to enter the house, you arrive at the entry to the building, a level pathway that pierces into the roof, and acts as the only visible disruption to its clean orthagonal roof form. As you follow the path the walls of the roof elevate above your head, until you are no longer at ground level, though you have not climbed any ramps or steps. You arrive above the living room to a vast expanse of You descend the staircase into a house that sits

as you move closer you arrive upon a cutout in the pool, that stretches from your feet, all the way into the underside of the structure, and as you look further you can see the underside of the structure.
