4 Square 9

The four square grid is resolutely centered at the crossing point of two lines. The nine square grid centers on a single cell, bounding it on all sides by a perimeter of squares; it is both center and perimeter. We hope to estrange one grid through the other, not to make them equivalent, but to show the alienation that employing both offers as a test to our preconceptions about architecture in plan and section through the logic of projection.
