nine squares, a few circles, and a couple piloti

The story of where these ideas come from is a hodgepodge, so let’s just talk about what this is: a circular atrium in the middle of a nine-square plan demarcated with Corbusian piloti-cum-columns, with its four corners filled with circles: two circles are set up as objects, while two others are strung together with a larger radius.  All of this sits below a blank square volume, continuing the allusion to Villa Savoy, with a strong gable at the roof line.
