1

how users, client, community or even the designer assigned value to forms and spaces

Value system

2

Differences rely on the importance of the form and spaces due to
• Function
• Symbolic roles

Hierarchy

3

Hierarchy is achieved by:

- Exceptional size
• Unique shape
• Strategic location

4

Element can be of significant it is the smallest or the biggest in size of similar shapes

Exceptional Size

5

• Contrast in shape

Unique Shape

6

• End of line or axial organization
• Centerpiece of a symmetrical
organization
• Central or radial organization
• Offset above, below, or in the
foreground of a composition

Strategic Location

7

cut through or form a common edge for the pattern while grid of lines can form a neutral, unifying field for the patterns

Line

8

serve as background and frame the elements

Plane

9

collect pattern of elements within the boundaries or organize them along the perimeter

Volume

10

is the movement characterized by the patterned recurrence of elements or motifs at regular or irregular interval

Rhythm

11

It is generally difficult to change the form of a point as it only possesses the most basic of visual element property, its position or location. If one changes its only property, it simply is transferred, and not transformed.

Form Transformation

12

Form Transformation can happen by:

- Extension/Expansion
- Curving/Rolling
- Rotation
- Folding

13

the element of contact between mass (solid) and space.

form

14

Spheres, cones, pyramids, cubes or solids taken collectively are very important primary forms. They serve as “_________” of the objects that we see around us.

building blocks

15

refers to the change made by means of changing any of the figure’s dimensions (length, width, height, volume), while maintaining its characteristics that allow it to remain in its original family of forms. The example on the right is part of the cube/box classification.

Dimensional Transformation

16

may or may not result to the retention of the figure’s identity. A pyramid going through a subtractive transformation may end up as a diamond or a type of prismatic figure (prismatoid), bringing it into another family of figure classification.

Subtractive Transformation

17

is likely to change the group classification of the figure, and possibilities of resulting to a new form seem endless.

Additive Transformation

18

indicates a position in space has no length, width, depth
static, directionless, centralized

Point

19

As element of form, a point serve as:

- Two ends of a line
- Intersection of two lines
- Meeting of lines at the corner of the plane or volume
- The center of the field

20

extending a point produce a line
A line is a continuous mark made by a pencil, brush, pen or other tool.
Lines can be thick or thin, straight or curved, jagged or smooth, light or heavy.

Line

21

extending line and intersecting with two more lines become a plane. It has length and width shape, surface, orientation, position.

Plane

22

is the identifying character of form.

Shape
