A generative drawing in progress

What does it all mean?

Ha! Funny you should ask. It's not a typical "technical" drawing, i.e. "here's the door, here's the window..." It's more analytical. We were given a precedent house (mine was Neil Denari's Massey House) and we were suppose to derive a "seed" from it in axonometric view. A "seed" being either an important part of the house, a concept from the house, the underlying structure/organization, etc. From there, we were to superimpose a site plan (from our studio project) onto the seed...and then strategically/generatively expand the drawing, discovering nuances as you go... that's it in a nutshell.

Aren't you sorry you asked. :-)
