Sanford Kwinter’s “Landscapes of Change” speaks of form and its underlying triggers and tendencies through a discussion of futurism and. “According to [the Hylomorphic] model, an independently constituted and fixed form is understood to be combined or impressed with a certain. I’m not sure I entirely understood this reading. I think Kwinter was arguing that forms are not really set entities, but entities in a state of stability.

This notion that a system can make leaps starting from sudden shifts in behavior inevitably causing dramatic and unpredictable changes in state lends itself to catastrophe theory. Email required Address never made public.

A mechanistic, or deterministic, approach to dealing with water — rain water run-off, and waste water — is to remove the matter of it. Information from certain levels in the system is transported to other levels, with dramatic results as some parts or strata can not withhold the minimum change and thus precipitate a catastrophe forcing the system to find a new equilibrium.

But then how do singularities differ from catastrophes? The model becomes the site of an event or events, of forces and actions at play within the model. Now think bio-swales at a scale larger than a gutter, toward an entire landscape of undulation surfaces, retention areas, and the natural habitat that will emerge from this.
Watch the video with chnage reflections on this piece found here. In terms of architecture I think this makes sense though, at least from my very limited understanding of the reading.
Ssnford events are determined by the singularities of the flow space and not the quantitative substrate. Email required Address never made public. Topology describes transformational events deformations that introduce real discontinuities into the evolution of the system itself. Email required Address never made public.

That is, get it underground, put it in pipes, and release it in the river as if it were a waste and water run-off conveyor system.
The same follows more upstream — water has an enormous impact on wildlife ecologies and the landscape that supports them. Carbon is formed into diamonds under specific conditions.
