R17 is a research study that explores new forms through certain actions on complex geometries, and modes of representation through cuts, layouts and sequence of volumes.

From William Burroughs's "Cut-Up Method" to the chopping of vegetables inside a kitchen, these actions culminate into the reconstitution of elements, producing results that go beyond their original states.


Drawing relationships that were once foreign reveal new layers of knowledge and understanding. Through a cut, slit or perforation, we could expose yet conceal, separate yet connect, and entangle yet disentangle a building's components, because the act of cutting loosens certain relationships while tightening others.
