dc.description.abstract In a society where events and situations have become fast moving, temporary, and continually changing, whose various institutions have become de-centralized and fragmented, whose people have become independent, yet vastly interconnectsd, there has resulted an alternative method for architects to design buildings. As a way for architects and architecture to respond to, if not emulate, today's life patterns, all the thousands of pre-fabricated building parts are arranged together in often non-traditional configurations and with "inappropriate" connotations, to form moments at which events take place. Regarded as novelties, these cataloged found objects are tactically deployed through society, linked to events, and coagulate at moments where needed. The duration of these moments is determined by the event. As events move on, so does the architecture.
