By focusing on the site as a point of exchange, and the premise that exchange is enhanced by increasing surface area, identified contextual programs were treated as a set of constituent spaces rather than singular constructions. Dividing these programs into their constituent elements and re-forming them into new program groups based on adjacency and opposition allowed for an exploration of new potential programs. This process of re-calibrating programs forms a new urban typology responsive to contextual conditions and providing variety and density within a city.
