Party walls are taken as the fundamental structure of adjacent buildings and used as instruments for de-laminating the solid faces of the block. Instead of filling in between them, each composite wall is redefined as a frame or armature off of which living spaces can be blown. Again the three components of the cavity wall are isolated and rewoven as skin, cavity and structure.
