ArchiGifs is a postponed project which was initially started as an excuse to learn animation after graduation from architecture school. Often, architects present their work by making a series of repetitive drawings. Peter Eisenman famously investigated the nine-square in his House I - House X series in the 1960s. Rather than understanding the nine-square as a static structural field, the grid itself moves. The project notes the first moment of animation in architecture, where structure, which was always understood to be stable, begins to move.

ArchiGifs borrows from this project by making a series of repetitive, diagrammatic drawings of various seminal projects. This will hopefully be returned to in the future.
