“Inhabiting the Rhizome” is interested in breaking down existing normative heirarchies in the practice of architecture, while seeking the emergence of new heirarchies through the complex interaction of various architectural systems. It is the result of the controlled and calibrated self-organization of program and structure, which is then solidified by layering varied intensities of spline curves relative to programmatic function and site concerns. ┬áThe project begins to question the relationship between form/function and structure/ornament, and gives rise to a design that possesses a strikingly intense quality.
