House VI

The first portion of this project is Peter Eisenman's House VI, recited. Revisiting the original set of fourteen drawings enables the understanding of how the diagram has become a tool of making architecture, as understood by these series of developments. In attempt to further understand the reason for each action and formation of House VI, these fourteen transformations are put under a microscope, examined, and replicated with todays computer software.
