Eisenman has performed his diagrammatic experiments in a chain of architectural designs, a lot of that are documented in his Diagram Diaries. those diaries should be learn as directions to be used. They clarify how he has generated diagrams from the geometric styles he has learn throughout proposed architectural websites, from liquid crystals, from the wave styles emitted through the human mind. Eisenman additionally describes how he has redeployed texts drawn from historic, narrative, and filmic resources, into his layout method. occasionally he indicates his diagrams are generated from stipulations which are immanent to his given tasks, occasionally he indicates his diagrams are far more arbitrary. ultimately, he tells us, 'the diagram makes an attempt to unmotivate position, to discover inside position house as a void, as a neg­ ativity or nonpresence to be stuffed up with the recent figuration of the signal' (Eisenman 1999: 215). The influenced architectural signal assumes the con­ flation of signal and signified, and makes a declare for the autonomy of archi­ tecture. by means of unmotivating the floor of structure, a technique that may be in comparison to Bacon's actions of blurring and smudging, Eisenman needs to invent a sequence of novel figures for structure. just like the autistic childrens that folks Deleuze's essay, 'What childrens Say', architects 'never cease speaking approximately what they're doing or attempting to do: exploring milieus, through dynamic trajectories and drawing up maps of them' (Deleuze 1998: 61). we've seen only a glimpse of this job above.
