a-project is developing approaches to the conditional construction of “openings” within a grid framework. Proximity, area, scale and serial algorithmic control are tested within a grid framework to allow specific logics of openings within a surface construction and the associated manipulation of a field. These “openings” within the grid are to be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to contingent factors which translate the principles of interrupting a surface – these factors manipulating the properties and applications of the aperture.

a-project is developing the possibilities of these “openings” that are then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation of specific programmes and uses. The distribution logics continue to be shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable at scales from field conditions through to individual building elements, structures and components.

The following images present an initial product of this research:

a-project is an architectural design practice that provides a flexible architectural service that is responsive to the complexities of contemporary life and the varied situations of the built environment and client needs. It focusses on an open approach to design problems – responding to the multiple factors that shape the process of designing – from the social, economic and physical environmental challenges to historic, material and personal narratives.
