The intent of this project is to examine the "ground" and its role in the definition of a cubic volume. Ground is understood as a vital component to the making and defining of space. It creates a legible datum that informs orientation, path, section and plan. The definition of eight points of space or a cube was examined with the following elements: points, planes, volumes, corners, edges, perimeters, centers, intersections, and folds.
