Description: 2: Contextual Fit
















An addition to an existing order, "requires first that the ordering system of the prior or prototypical model be perceived and understood so that, through a series of finite changes and permutations, the original design concept can be clarified, strengthened, and built upon, rather than destroyed."

Francis D.K. Ching, Architecture: Form, Space & Order
