Conditional Design: Introduction to Elemental Architecture
Following up the bestselling Operative Design, Conditional Design further explores the operative in a more detailed, intentional, and perhaps functional manner. Spatially, the conditional is the result of the operative. Both terms work together to satisfy a formal manipulation through a set of opportunities for elements such as connections and apertures. The conditional starts with investigating not only ideas of circulation and light but also how volumes relate to the ground. These manipulations might react to an already existing condition or create a new set of conditions based on the operation and the ground plane.
