Architectural Curvilinearity Reviews
For many years in the architecture industry, there have been many conflicts within and between diverse physical, cultural, and social contexts. For instance, a diagonal dialogue between a building and its context has always been an emblem of the contradictions within the contemporary culture (Wolch & Owen, 2017). There have been resistances resulting from reactionary responses, but attempting to recover unified architectural languages that can stand against heterogeneity. This unity can only be achieved by reconstructing a continuous architectural language through historical analysis or identifying local consistencies resulting from indigenous climates, materials, traditions, or technologies.
However, these conflicts are slowing down since a group of young architects are produced by the previous architects who had differences (Martek et al., 2018). These architects are employing strategies that exploit discontinuities not by representing them but rather by affiliating them with one another through continuous flexible systems.
In the article, the author argues that these supple projects forms are neither geometrically exact nor arbitrarily figural at an urban scale. In the article, John Rajchan has articulated an affinity between complexity and folding where complications involve an intricate assembly of these extrinsic particularities into a complex network. Pliant systems which are inclined and influenced shows diversity in that it is both one and many simultaneously.
Alternative ways of transformation
There is a geometric description of variable deformation provided by D' Arcy Thompson as an instance of morphological development. There is a comparison between typological and transformational systems that show two different conceptions of continuity. The discontinuous development intensively involves external forces in the deformation of morphological structure types, according to Thompson.
