    Abstract

    In 1967 John Hejduk exhibited a series of drawings and models in New York that explore the architectural implications of the forty-five degree rotation of bounding elements relative to an orthogonal system. The work was the result of a five-year investigation into the problem. This paper examines the architectural effects released by the so-called diamond configurations, speculates on their ability to go beyond certain composition ideas and devices, and examines the notion of a temporality specific to architecture
