In the Vigo Sundt House project the diagonal becomes part of the overall triangular module.
In the David Wright House the whole building becomes a diagonal ramp.
In the Guggenheim Museum, where the diagonal spiral is the dominant motival order in a more complex program, the rectangular perpendicular form does express exceptional circumstances. Inside, the vertical order of the structure, and particularly of the shaft containing toilets is expressed in order to provide stable measure for the converging spiral ramp.
