Concept wise they might not be entirely related but Joshua Citarella’s project “Compression Artifacts” first came to mind after reading the introduction of this writing.

“If architecture is writing, the shack is speech”

Architecture (Latin architectura, from the Greek ἀρχιτέκτων arkhitekton “architect”, fromἀρχι- “chief” and τέκτων “builder”) is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art.

The idea that the shack would be like an origin, the foundation of shelter that created it all. Without shack there is no architecture? Just as the progression of language is so incredible, the structure and design elements of architecture have branched out in unimaginable ways.
