Spatial Recodex Matrix, an analysis based on Dorrego Tower by Joselevich Ricur (1971) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Much akin to how Borromini's San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane (1638-1641) can be broken down into a series of geometrical systems to engender its curvaceous interior and exterior, residential typology present in Dorrego Tower was analyzed to create a range of prototypical housing units from bachelor-pad studios to multi-generational units.
From r=xº, radius was expanded by 10 meters. The original room area was compared against the new configuration based on initial radiating lines. Where the original trace intersected, a line was drawn to reconfigure the room sizes. In the case of expansion, the original room size was used to insert new rooms, which becomes master or service programs. Blue area are additions, and red are subtractions, from the new room area to reconfigure back to the initial room size.
