I have decided on a document centering on James Stirling's three masterful interpretations: the Stirling/Corbu Olivetti projects, the Düsseldorf / Altes Museum connection, and the Cologne [Wallraf-Richartz Museum] promenade architecturale. This will be a very full document featuring four virtual buildings (Düsseldorf, Cologne, Stirling Olivetti, Corbu Olivetti). Schinkel's Altes Museum and the Corbu architectural promenade buildings will be featured but not documented.
The secondary point of the document is to exhibit a largely undisclosed circle of design influence and intentions between Schinkel, Le Corbusier, and Stirling. I have already thought out the specific connections between Stirling and Corbu and Stirling and Schinkel, but I will also be introducing a possible Corbu-Schinkel connection in the "architectural promenade" of the Altes Museum. Although this circle of three architects is important, the main point will be to demonstrate the methodology of Stirling's art of architectural interpretation.
The three discussions of the three Stirling projects bring up Stirling's submission to Roma Interrotta and I will be using that "design" as an other example of a Virtual Museum of Architecture and as yet another example of Stirling's fine art of interpretation and reinterpretation.
The document will end with a discussion of how the circulation sequence of the Altes Museum is very similar to the Corbusian architectural promenade formula... I also have to mention how Boullée inspired the Altes Museum, and this then brings up the French/German crossover -- cross fertilization. [...and there is more in the notes.]
James Stirling, Roma Interrotta: Nolli Sector IV, 1978.
Re: vatican museum
I believe you are correct about Wright plagiarizing Momo, in that plagiarize means: to steal or pass off as one's own (the ideas or words of another); use (a created production) without crediting the source; to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source. But the buildings themselves do not plagiarize each other, rather they manifest reenactment. For example, if Wright had acknowledged Momo's design, then Wright would no longer be guilty of plagiarism, but the Guggenheim as a building wouldn't actually change because of the acknowledgment.

I'm looking to combine 'ichnographia' and 'ludus' and the phrase I'd like to come up with would translate as 'plans of play' or 'playful plans'.

Your best bet here is a simple Ludi Ichnographici.

Archinect hates Architecture
I've been using CAD architecturally since 1983. For almost 13 years now most of my work is networked.
"Generative architecture" is still in its virtual stage.
I'm currently working on a virtual museum of architects (within the museum of a virtual architecture).
