Through the cohesion of daily, monthly and yearly rituals, performance can begin to co-exist, creating hybridized zones of opportunity where architecture begins to fuse.  When the rhythm of ones daily life abruptly alters due to the "unexpected", changes become inflicted upon the domestic terrain to customize to the new performances that the architecture must address.
