summary 
The basic research project addresses the question of spatiality in architecture and how to define space by geometrically mediating between spatialities. Based on interdisciplinary explorations of crystal structures and their specific constitutions, spatial paradigms are examined and implemented in the algebraic framework of crystals. The goal of the ongoing research is not to resemble and mimic these emergent crystal arrangements. It is only about the general principle of these formation processes particularly with regard to aperiodic quasicrystals. Through the purposive abstraction and translation of spatialities combined with the notion of crystals as a code like structure, it is possible to scrutinize the meaning of space in order to create space for new architectonical articulations.
