This thesis outlines a process of observation and transformation using formalized concepts about space, territory, and position as well as transfonnational rules implicit in these concepts. A set of references is analyzed and explained using a common graphical language which serves to locate the references within a continuum of spatial configurations. Transformational rules are developed which allow for the generation of new configurations. Some proposals are made about inhabiting these configurations and the process of formal observation and trtransformation is placed within the larger context of design.
