Carefully consider the following approaches as you construct your seven (7) new model iterations @ 1/32″=1′-0″ for Friday. We will discuss the criteria outlined below in studio on Friday.
When confronted with an urbanistic program, an architect may either:
a. Design a masterly construction, an inspired architectural gesture (a composition)
b. Take what exists, fill in the gaps, complete the text, scribble in the margins (a complement)

d. Search for an intermediary-an abstract system to mediate between the site (as well as all given constraints) and some other concept, beyond city or program (a mediation)
