Abstract
I propose to create a building whose formal

architectural elements; floor, wall, column,

and stair, all transform to provide for the

needs of the user. The structure will exist

as not just a support for an enclosure, but a

system where the furniture, storage, and

other systems are integrated parts of the

building itself. This is the central idea that

I will use to create a form language that

can be applied to a building whose parts

serve all of the functions of the building.

If the building itself changes to accommodate

the needs of the creator, then the

building would become an integral tool in

the creative process.
