Cadence is proposed as a Library and Learning Center seeking to achieve a hybrid between the figural section and the rationalized plan. The final section is derived by reconfiguring a precedented artifact through specific operations of nesting and stacking. The result is a varied section whereby moments of intensity and relief emerged to deliver a diverse sense of spatial density and a degree of cadence in which the sequence of occupation is produced. Volumes are disassociated from the ground, further evidence of a varied density and a polarized relationship of plan and section.
