The morphological and integrative potential of fundamental processes existing throughout the natural environment is being systematically explored through an architectural work-in-progress titled the "Phenomenological Garden." As part of the overall objectives of this project and the Forms Studies Unit at Carleton University's School of Architecture, students in the Crossings workshop have also carried out this exploration through projects that incorporate hands-on procedures derived from the research. These projects inherently allow for an intuitive learning process to occur through the nature of the materials and processes involved in the exploration.
