Jump Cut

This project creates a continuity between the two sections in plan using four loops that can accommodate discrepancies and generate heterogeneity. The loose figures of four loops resemble one another, generate continuity by tangency, and accommodate discrepancy in programmatic organization. The tangency of the box to the looping figures allows for peeling without breaking the continuous surface that binds the misaligned floor levels. The figures, being two dimensional shapes, inherit a level of freedom to create a collage of conditions, such as a circulation space, a single room, or a series of rooms that composes a sub-residence. The figure as a generative diagram liberates architecture from a singular space-making strategy and allows for the jump from one paradigm to another within one snapshot.
