Diagram C can now be used as the base for drawing a few alternative form composi­tion studies for the Duncan residence. Structured diagonal forms are used for structures (walks, steps, fences, etc.), whereas softer, sweeping forms are used for the lawn edges and planting beds. The third, Diagram C, resulted from combining ideas from the other two. At the end of Chapter 8, three functional diagrams were developed for the Duncan residence. Note how this composition relates to both the functional diagram that preceded it and the lines of force. Eugene, OH 10548

Two-dimensional forms that are pleasing to the eye yet practical to build and maintain are based on principles of sound geometric relationships among forms, a direct correlation to the functional diagrams, a respect for ex­isting structures and site conditions, the desired charac­ter of the design, and the wishes of the client. For example, notice how certain edges of the eating area and living area relate to edges of the house, doors, and windows. The diagonal orientation of the eating and living areas in the backyard directs views from these spaces toward the planting areas along the site’s boundaries, while the flowing curves furnish motion for the eye.
