This thesis establishes indiscrete adjacency as an organization that can synthesize formerly discrete programs to produce integration and cross-fertilization across programmatic boundaries. Indiscrete space moves beyond cellular and continuous spatial models to produce fluctuating heirarchies of organization, program, circulation and form. The effect of these multiple heirarchies is a pervasive condition of simultaneously belonging to many spaces. The increasing number and complexity of activities, occupants, and group identities in an elementary school can no longer be organized by simple adjacency between discrete cells. Indiscrete adjacency is proposed as a model able to manage this complexity by producing spaces with allegiances to several programs at once.
