Title: Manipulations in the abstract space
Author: Schurk, Holger
Abstract: At the centre of the examinations presented here are the interaction processes taking place at the interface between theory and form in the design process effectuated by means of intermediate media – most of all drawings – in the sphere of geometry. A decisive role is assigned to abstraction, allowing to locate graphic representations at the threshold between the projection of a structural model and the notation of an imagined model. A graphic study based on the design drawings created by the architecture office OMA/Rem Koolhaas are applied here as an example in order to describe and investigate this interface. In the process the drawings are manipulatedin a hybrid procedure consisting of manoeuvres determined by rules on one hand and free operations on the other. The examination method thus stands in direct analogy to the hybrid character of the design process itself.
