dc.description.abstractThrough an analogical process, this thesis explores the concept of transformation as it affords opportunities for order and structure in architecture. Beginning with the square as the seed from which the projects develop, orthogonal grids are employed as a means for developing ordering geometries as form-giving structures. A historical reference, deriving structure and form from a square grid instantiates development of the theme. Having examined some conditions of transformation in architecture, the work turns to a consideration of some personal explorations of transformation that may be of use in future architectural undertakings. The consequent forms are not intended to justify the particular transformational grammars; rather they are to be taken as models for future development.en
