-The precise, rigorous ordering and qualification of the data and the initial unknown quantities and qualitites, the relations between them, will give us a complex equation with multiple questions and clear priorities. The questions are about what and how we’ll add, take out, transforming matter and energy into an inhabitable structure, and the overall needs and possibilities of the current commission.
This equation does not have the form of an equation. It resembles a diagram. This equation is not, and cannot be solved by, some preestablished formulas. The way how we order these questions will generate the plan, and in order to develop it, in the following stages, we will apply some techniques, both known or made on purpose for this particular study case. The plan is the outcome of an objective process. It needs to be totally justified by practical and performability reasons, which of course include dweller’s and builder’s feelings, not ours.
