Writing an abstract or summary for my presentation to this event proves more difficult than expected – which lies in part at the heart of the event itself: it serves a dual purpose, at least. On the one hand the intention is to present, quite pragmatically, some results from the research project funding it. On the other hand, the inten-tion is to raise questions on a higher level regarding architecture, modelling and spatial analysis. These are not contradictory, as the latter in part comes from the former, but it raises some issues as to whether to focus a summary on the results concretely, or the implications that were part of spawning the theme of the workshop. This ‘summary’, therefore, will have to wander somewhere in-between while aiming to definitively provide the former. I intend to get to this stage later on.
The project behind the research workshop Architectural Morphology: Investigative modeling and spatial analysis, Resilient Infrastructure and Building Security, asks several questions to spatial analysis that to certain extents are different than what we usually encounter – and similarly, in our experience, architectural analysis asks questions to the other fields involved in the project that are sometimes given little attention. What I intend to do in this presentation, is to try and extract and describe some implications and questions raised in this work, and set them in relation to a wider architectural and morphological context. Originating in specific questions, what I will try to discuss here is thus some more overarching results that I believe of more general architect-ural interest. These will be formulated through two core concepts that have grown forth as central within the research that seem interdependent: spatial interfaces and spatial resilience
