Singles and Multiples is a compact collection of research into the core of architecture and urban form. Represented in orthographic drawings, axonometric projections, and black and white photographs, the elemental methods of architectural operations are explored and documented as a means to illustrate operative logics and formal understanding. Operations to the singular body are equated with the architectural object while deployment and modification of the multiple are understood as imminently urban; i.e. collection and aggregation of objects. Traced through the discourses of Fumihiko Maki's Investigations of Collective Form, Colin Rowe and Robert Slutzky's Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal, and Paul Rudolph's projects in the tropical local of Southeast Asia, Singles and Multiples provides impressive examples of architectural and urban figuration aligned to its operative foundations.
