Notes on Architecture is an on-going research project tracing the key canonical architectural ideas unique to the architectural discipline, particularly ideas related to syntax and reading of architecture as a formal language.

As opposed to looking at history in a chronological and narrative way, the framework analyses the birth and transformation of critical architectural ideas. As such, the research focuses on critical projects of new beginnings, which invents new concepts and opens up new possibilities for the discipline, rather than projects of grand finale which are epitome of existing concepts.

It looks at history as a projective and creative tool rather than a nostalgic one, leading to the thesis for the studio “Nomadic Topology: From Parametric Form to Topological Space”.

“...the term canonical encompasses the potential heretical and transgressive nature of ways of close reading architecture. “—Peter Eisenmen, Ten Canonical Buildings

.

“We need architects who give us beginnings and not endings, and whose buildings not only inspire, but also give us the tools for thinking and working to go forward.”—Lebbeus Woods
