<p>In 1967 John Hejduk exhibits a series of drawings and models that explore the architectural implications of the forty-five degree rotation of bounding elements relative to an orthogonal system.   The work was the result of a five-year investigation into the problem.  This paper examines the architectural effects released by the so-called diamond configurations, speculates on their ability to go beyond certain composition ideas and devices, and examines the notion of a temporality specific to architecture.</p>
