The project revolves around the formal analysis of interstitial fragmentation and the discontinuity of parts. A collection of structural and non-structural elements was selected from Adolf Loos’s 1930 Villa Muller to create an agglomeration. The result of said agglomeration speculates on spatial quality and categorically investigates form via object-oriented ontology.
Fragmentation serves as a compositional instrument, the interstices inform the form. The phenomena of a contiguous and continuous space,
that of which Loos imparted on, is implied in the spaces introduced by interstices.
What I found most interesting during this exploration was the possibility of infinite modification yielded from this particular methodology (interstitial fragmentation). To recapitulate, the possibilities include: modular superimposition, displacement of planes, and development of nonhabitable spaces of which its primary purpose is visual connectivity/continuity.
