The search for the right architectural form could scarcely be presented more convincingly and clearly than it is in The Making of Haus Ideal. The design process is illuminated using examples of preliminary and working models, which change and develop constantly through subtle shifts in requirements. This performative form-finding process continuously generates interrelated, alternative solutions in eight progressive sequences, from the preliminary model to the final form. It provides interesting insights into the continual refinement of the design, as well as the sometimes sculptural and sometimes narrative originality of the objects that emerge in the early stage of the process. It comes as no surprise that the last, final form is ultimately not always ideal. However, in Haus Ideal all the original possibilities are shown.
