Four Limits _ House of Books
The type of a architecture is built under the influence of material and immaterial conditions and it results in a single architecture through a transformation process. Kenneth Frampton describes these three conditions in three domains called the topos, the typos and the tectonic. The content described is valid to this day and the conditions that effects the many stages of architectural construction will be analysed and applied using processes. A single architecture absorbs and reacts to many limitations. Amongst these limitations we will set four limiting situations and follow the transformation of the architecture apply these limitations to the final architecture.


the four limitations are:
limit 1- scale vs size
limit 2- specific beha vior
limit 3- material & struc ture
limit 4- resilience
