In contrast to typical masonry construction of in-situ adjustment that employs mortar for tolerance, this method of neighboring alignment relies on precision carving to inform the assembly.

He studied architecture in London, taking seventeen years to graduate from a curriculum which is supposed to take but five. However, a project he designed in the fourth year of his studies found its way, via a curious set of circumstances, into the exhibition at MoMA New York in 1962 entitled &ldquo;Visionary Architecture.&rdquo; His thesis design: The &lsquo;Sin Palace&rsquo; which repeatedly failed at his school of architecture, was later widely published.</p><p>He then, circa 1963, joined the Archigram Group, a collection of six young architects rebelling against what they saw as an English architectural scene on life support. Through the pages of a magazine the group produced highly colored images of &lsquo;a new architecture that would stand alongside the spacecapsules, the inflatable structures and the lifestyles of a new generation.&rsquo;</p><p>For eleven years, an exhibition of the group&rsquo;s work toured the world.
