Form; we cannot simply usher in its relevance without the invitation of reason. Form is of importance in design, and we simply conceive it as that which matter surrounds. Lifestyle changes, societal and structurally, are aspects we explore on a second-by-second basis, an intricate pursuit of comfortbility in conjunction with conformity, but is it ever so? Can its immediate, apparent existence justify its persistence? Sometimes our in our attempt to justify its persistence, the idea of form leads to bright, wonderful and sometimes scary designs.

The Bundle House, a project by Keyla Hernandez and Jason Orbe-Smith from Hernan Diaz Alonso’s Spring 2012 XLAB studio at SCI-Arc takes all concept’s into consideration; a sculpture, a shelter and a monument all in one. The epitome of form is fantastically embodied in its exaggerated design, from its deep, natural harvest color and shade, down to the winding curves formulating its existence.”]

The exploration of curvature relies heavily upon the movement of the landscape and the program, allowing for enclosures and apertures to occur depending upon the density of the line work. Even the landscape, initially a flat site, was reimagined using similar techniques, creating disruptions on a linear system in order to create topography and rhythm.”]

This modern marvel extrudes in and out of the landscape, winding a natural path from start to finish, accounting for light, darkness and an ever expanding sense of being one with the environment.
