Peter Eisenman’s ideas have clearly been developed and realised on the design of House X, the final part of a series of housing designs that study and extend further more the concepts of deconstruction by the architect.
House X has a special complexity, an architectural form that derives from studies of maths, geometry and philosophy on a combination of planes that create spaces, voids and 3d spaces, highly related between differentiating grids. An extended version of Eisenman’s theories that includes concepts from previous designs to a more complex but at the same time more complete design solution.
This is an attempt to apply Eisenman’s theories of deconstruction onto Typography. In other words, a representation of Eisenman’s architecture through type elements that stand on 3d planes, creating volumes and spaces in such a form, as House X is developed throughout space.
The initial step of experimenting with architectural typography was an attempt to combine the title of the building (House X) with the actual walls, windows and voids of the structure.
