Architectural form which can be divided in three categories such as “mass”, “space” and “façade” are defined by graphic expressions and analyzed under these headings:

· Processes

· Relationships

· Organizations

· Ordering Principles

Processes for mass, space and façades, named as addition, subtraction and deformation, can be searched into four general headings. (Whole and combined processes are exceptional). These are:

· Horizontal (lateral) process

· Vertical process

      – Process from the top

      – Process from the bottom

· Oblique process

Ordering Principles

· Repetition (shapes or elements repeated)

· Hierarchy (The articulation of the importance or significance of a form or space)

· Alteration (a limited construction project for an existing building that comprises the modification or replacement of one or a number of existing building systems or components)

· Harmony (the sense that all of the elements of your design fit together)

· Gradation (a visual technique of gradually transitioning from one colour hue to another)

· Contrast (difference between two or more elements in a composition)

· Dominance (the one with the greatest visual weight)

· Unity (the principle of design that unifies all other principles within a piece of work)

· Balance (provides stability and structure to a design by placing the elements in such a way that the visual weight)

· Combined ordering principles (axis, symmetry, hierarchy, datum, rhythm, repetition, and transformation)
