This study is dedicated to the exploration of the fundamental orders, elements, and configurations of architectural form. This project assumes an inductive and anachronistic approach, focusing on the formal description and analysis of seminal case studies from the history of European architecture. The analysis of a case study, from the tradition of funerary spaces, is accomplished in three different phases. Throughout the semester, the work was supported by weekly discussions, presentations, and writings on the ideas emerging in the project. The first phase of the project was to document a case study by accurately an thoroughly constructing the basic drawings and models in order to demonstrate a preliminary understanding of the space. The second phase is focused on the formal analysis of the plan and the relationship of its internal coherence to its larger circumstances. The third phase of this analysis consisted of the verification and development of the third dimension of the plan analysis.
