a-project is developing the application of manipulated grid and component systems in the context of a tiled floor configuration. The “tiled” floor is an application of the grid and component research and is shown in binary materiality to emphasise the flexibility and variability of the basic grid and component system. These flexible “floors” can both be responsive and controlled with specific contingent sensitivities and algorithmic serial distortions that determine the grid, boundary and component arrangements. These “floors” are moderated by external boundaries or internal interstitial seams as well as the specific parameters of material distribution and component tile arrangements. These “floors” will be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to local contingent variables.

a-project is developing the possibilities of these tiled configurations that are then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation of specific programmes and uses. The floors are shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable within individual “rooms” as composite tiled configurations or alternatively translated into larger scales of field conditions.

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.
