The WHITE OBJECT was developed from a precedent analysis of the Entenza House (a.k.a. Case Study House #9) designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen. The main organizational aspects of the plan were exploited via several operations like shifting and rotating to break up the original plan and create a new diagram. 
The shifting and breaking of the two dimensional diagram created a system of layering and sharp fragmentation in the new analog object. This shattering of faces was also translated into the ground condition, as the floor plane is broken up into sharp triangulated pieces.
