Minifie Nixon projects often begin by research into design techniques, the repertoire of which has been massively expanded by the availability of new computational tools. Technique is not seen as an end in itself, but as a primary means of establishing relationships within a ‘design space’. Such design spaces may relate ideas of, say, functional organisations, urban and historical parameters, material construction and retinal and spatial experiences. A project then is seen not as a unique material proposition, but rather a particular instance of the configurations possible within that space.
