The history of the diptych involves examining two similar but different objects, trying to create interesting dialogue between two paintings. In this project, I aim to follow the spirit of the diptych by transforming existing LADG housing and creating an interesting building next to it. 

Using Michael Graves’ proposed additions to the Whitney Museum (1985-1988) as a reference, the project proposal for a single family home neighboring the LADG’s Armstrong Avenue Residence in Silver Lake. Next to the original LADG house, the new proposal constantly expresses the diptych through 45 and 90-degree projection throughout the whole project. It is the critic of the purity of absolute sameness or difference in architecture.
