A case study of preeminent Atlanta architects Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam’s home, 64 Wakefield, is used to explore potential design possibilities emanating through the incorporation of shape grammar formalism into the design process.  Particular attention is given to exploration of architectural space, light, and experience as identified through iterative schema productions.  Scogin and Elam’s body of work is referenced to provide an example of a design process that playfully confronts the contrasts of formal expression with the rigor vital to exceptional design.

The paper was presented at the 2014 Design Communication Association Conference and was printed in the conference proceedings, ISBN 978‐1‐4951‐2763‐2.
