ABSTRACT Because today’s architecture is characterized by various concepts and numerous designs instead of an architectural style, it is heavily described by the identity of the architect. However, according to the d-gene pool theory of Karina Moraes Zarzar, this identity is in general inspired by the past experiences of the architect more likely by a precedent that affected him differently. After that, this precedent is repeated again and again as Deleuze explained in order to create different and new concepts. Purpose: This paper studies how the concepts of repetition and difference are used to create an architectural identity and search whether all the repetitions with mutations are associated with the context. Limitation: The research will focus on the
architecture of Coop Himmelb(l)au since its foundation until today. Method: to study the identity of Coop Himmelb(l)au namely Wolf Prix as the founder of the firm, his concepts, basically the cloud concept, were analyzed regarding the “repetition and difference” theory of Deleuze.
