The project aims to pursue an extreme role of architectural parts as a dominant and independent agent in the process of architecture design. Through the exploration and integration of programmatic and spatial aspects of parts, they become autonomous and speculative. The project is then driven by these parts and possibilities created through the autonomy of them. Finally, parts become the negotiator between the flat ontology and part-to-whole relationship.
