a basilica

BASILICA_02

These drawings attempt to synthesize how a linear basilica form might stem from a square volume.  The first drawing is intentionally church-like, but I find the two derivations below to be more interesting – the first with apses at either end, and accessed from the short axis; the second with the stair tower volumes repeated, more of a town-hall.
