Multiformity: Toward a Multiparamater Effectiveness
Taylor, Matthew A.
Master of Architecture
This thesis produces new strategies for forming aggregations of units based on environmental factors. This is achieved by redefining the relationship between the public and private realms based on environmental performance and programming the formal performance; performance is defined as the dynamics between differentiated parts and their collective behavior. While typical strategies based on redistributing the unit, and recent architectural explorations in environmental performance, focus on single variable optimization; I'm interested in using multiples within environmental, programmatic and formal elements, to produce differentiation rather than optimization
