Rather than being at odds with Aldo Van Eyck’s Municipal Orphanage, the project's intention was to augment the orphanage’s matrix of parts. Augmentation occurs through irregularities to the column, wall, threshold, and beam. Instead of the matrix being a reflection of the one size fits all foster care system of the 60’s. The new irregularities will express the individuality of the building’s occupants and the program they inhabit in modern times.
