Three types of layering are identified: a chronological sedimentation of planes materializing changes over time (temporal layering), the additive sequence of spaces (spatial layering), and the stratification of individual planes (material layering).
Anne-Catrin Schultz studied architecture in Stuttgart, Germany and Florence, Italy, and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Stuttgart.

She has taught architecture history and theory as well as design studios at the University of Cal...
