Abstract
A library for rare books and a reading garden, the following project emerged from an attempt to better understand the idea of an autonomous architecture. Framing architectural questions as a choice between opposing alternatives of perceived relevance (e.g., geometric construction versus geometric composition, self referential versus self governing, singular versus universal) the project, which at its beginning was a simple exercise in geometric constructive technique, evolved as it was viewed through the lenses of those dualities.
