Model

Farshid Moussavi

Model is an anexact system of development that integrates a series of material (physical, structural, sensorial) traits and is able to respond to a multiplicity of concerns.

It generates different objects in space and time, such as the Gothic system, comprised of a pair of crossed roof arches with a polygonal ground plan, buttressed by side arches. The height of the central and side arches could vary (being either equal or different in height), as could the shape of the plan, resulting in singular cathedrals.
