material stock is recombined to enable extensions, subtraction as a means for addition
material source map
the idea can be expanded to take advantage of material from the rest of the site and the larger region

the model was used as a means of designing. the building as it is was originally replicated in the model then partially deconstructed. new elements then exclusively used the material stock from that process.
the model
this render presents an exploration for communicating the design process to occupants - material residues or painted inidcators of where elements were removed.
