Singular Architecture is architecture aligned with Nature. Nature is holistic, and holistic environments are fabricated places within which we tell a story. Singular Architecture is an instrumental labyrinth of pathways and intersections. Walking through the labyrinth, the story told is one of resonating harmonic connection. When we breathe life into our architecture, our architecture will breathe life into us.

As intervention into artificial environments, it shapes places as medicinal tonics for culture. SA tectonics architecturally engage a continuum of energetic translation between people and place, from the microcosm within our bodies to the macroscope of spiritual space, shifting toward increasing potential energy.

--- Heather Hoeksema, Architect

Professional Story

Ms. Hoeksema is an architect of sound, light, and movement experience. She is a musician, author, and professional architect. With a background in the human sciences and extensive experience in the cultural arts, she has developed a conceptual foundation for shaping environmental experience. This foundation intuitively and intentionally integrates healthy living and healing environments with architecture through a physiological understanding of fabricated place. She is a licensed Professional Architect and has exhibited and produced work internationally.

She expanded her focus from the study of health at the human scale to the scale of the fabricated environment after receiving a scholarship to the University of Michigan School of Architecture + Urban Planning. Also having become an experimental artist and exhibitor of painting, textiles, and photographic media; she began to integrate her work in the arts with her scientific background.

During her younger years, she was an advanced student of calculus and chemistry. In 1993 she drafted a well researched essay on the effects of maternity ward environments on the birth experience, in contrast to home birth. In 1995, she was extricated from a team of 3 in her structures class, for directing the group analysis on the failure of the Tacoma Narrows bridge toward a humanist perspective about misdirection of 'civilized progress' and resulting consequences of industrial technology. These experiences, and many others, led to her innovative approach for shaping architecture as living environments; from the perspective of both science and philosophy.

The breadth of Ms. Hoeksema's experience includes roles on globally significant architectural developments such as the Music and Dance Theatre in Chicago's Millennium Park, with a specialty focus on the auditorium. She has worked with the likes of historically renowned architects including Eric Lloyd Wright as well as internationally significant firms. Through her private practice she has been commissioned nationally for articulating both interior cultural spaces and homes.

She has taught at a number of higher learning institutions including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; in addition to modest public speaking and volunteer work with organizations like Rush University Medical Center and Free Arts for abused children. She chose to leave Harvard Graduate School of Design, after one semester of discovering its inherent contraditions between ethics and teaching. She is founder of the in progress entity Institute of Environmental Intellect which is poised to offer an authentic approach to education in addition to guidance for environmentally based research projects.

Her multi-disciplinary architecture lab, HHEAL, has been active for well over a decade. She has been involved in the practice and academia of Architecture, integrating healing and environments as Singular Architecture, for over 20 years. She had recently established Singular Architecture, a publishing entity of which the foundation is the 'Singular Architecture' book series. Singular Architecture is the foundation for HHEAL LLC productions.

She has completed the first book of the series 'Singular Butterfly: Verse 3/3' and distributed it in book stores nationally. She has also recently completed and published 'Flash Light: 9 Girls' Stories for Grown Ups' which is currently being distributed nationally as well. Her current production is a music album of her original singer/songwriter compositions titled 'Rode Show', which is also the title of her current tour of authored works.


Personal Story

Ms. Hoeksema was born in Phoenix in a Native American hospital. Her delivering physician was Dr. Childs. With her birth came a heart murmur. Yet she was blessed with Navajo caregivers, syncing her rhythms into place. She almost drowned in a pool during this first year of life. Her parents then moved to the mid west, bringing artifacts from the caregivers... an Indian doll and a papoose.

Raised by an orthopedic surgeon and gallery connoisseur, she learned early on to translate between objective thinking and subjective intuition. She often found herself resonating between the two, at times lingering in suspense. She played the piano for years, her most memorable moment a concert trio of Canon in D. Soon after, she had the fascinating experience singing with a choir in Carnegie Hall.

Her grandmothers cared for her grandfathers. Her mother's mother graciously left the eighth grade to care for her dying sister. Her father's mother kept boxes of diaries. Her mother's father started his own electric company after he was shot upon storming the beaches of Normandy. Her father's father was a navy man stationed in Japan, and a doctor of organic chemistry. They worked hard for what they had, and did their best to respect people and the environment around them. They had character.

Her ongoing balancing act between science and art eventually led to her pursuit of architecture, following studies in the human sciences. She often considered being a doctor, and chose a different path after sensing the inherent contradictions between technological medicine and well being. Later in time, this sentiment guided her interest in shaping healing environments.

Living in many regions of the states, she often found herself observing more than producing for fear of being wasteful. Working, thinking, teaching... and writing, she montaged together experiences that led her to where all lost Souls eventually land. This land was the maze of Los Angeles. Ever since this landing she has been fabricating a labyrinth.

She had two dogs as she navigated across the country. The first one Tess, bit her mom on the head. The second, Dozer, chewed up her Indian doll. Her childhood dog Brandy had been her best friend. She thinks patriarchal religion, unbridled, will mathematically lead to human extinction. Nature is God, existing in a composing continuum within and between two resonant beings.

_____________VERSE 8/6 : METABOLIC EARTH_____________
Fluid Tectonics ~ perfect fourth x 2


' Atmospheric Breath '

Specific to metabolic energy calibration, at all scales, is the physiological process of bifurcation within an energy system.  The clearest presence of bifurcation, in organic life, is embedded within the principles of what science terms Hopf Bifurcation.  Hopf Bifurcation is the most basic bifurcation system in the study of fluid dynamic motion.  It is a naturally occurring bifurcation principle.  In contrast to unadaptive artificial bifurcation, which is an abrupt ‘splitting’ event within an energetic system, Hopf Bifurcation describes the sequential shift between 'one and two' and 'two to one' energy cycles, in the simplest terms.  It describes a bifurcation as ‘branching’ cyclic pathways and the inverse, ‘stemming’.  It defines the nature of ‘periodicity’ as a fluctuation between self oscillating periodic cycles and curvilinear fields of expanding energy, by way of energetic calibrative adaptation.  A Hopf Bifurcation is the energy shift across the threshold from stability and instability, and inverse from instability to stability, of a system.  As the most empirical model of fluid dynamic energy movement, it serves as one of the most important analytical mechanisms for understanding metabolic processes; the energy based life and death of organisms on Earth.  As such, it serves as the primary analytical tool for energy movement and for discovering healthy sustainable growth solutions for environmental health within and around us, at the simple level of energy translation.  It depicts the nature of energy systems fluctuating between localized and decentralized energy patterning, representing metabolic movement of energy cycles.  As bifurcating energy calibrates, so does sustainable growth.  As sustainable growth calibrates, so does the relationship between life sustaining resources and human population growth.



Sustainable growth is simple.  It only becomes difficult to achieve as certain organisms, such as the human race, live with the delusion that individual life is more important than the holistic balance of all life on Earth.  Ultimately those who fail to understand the importance of all organic life on earth, become self isolated like a cancerous tumor. And the system of Nature eliminates the cancer.  This phenomenon is embedded in the shared code of organic life on earth, and the encoded calibration of all inter-related species, by way of the metabolism of energy.  DNA is the base genetic code to all living entities on the planet.  It is encoded molecularly within each plant and animal body, and connected across the shared molecular fabric that supports energetic sustainable growth at all scales.  DNA (dioxyriboneucleic acid) transcripts the making of RNA (riboneucleic acid) molecules, which support sustainable growth actively, in the facilitation of energy rich proteins.  Proteins are the basic source of energy in our bodies and around us, as they are the 'primary' calibrators of metabolism of energy.  They are also the source of energy in plant life.  Together, the production (anabolism) and decomposition (catabolism) of energy rich proteins, balances metabolic planetary life.  Energetic proteins, produced from translations of each living being’s encoded RNA, are the basis for the primary metabolic exchange between oxygen producing plants and oxygen consuming animals.  This omnipresent metabolic breath embodies the sustainable equations for balanced sustainable growth.



The sustainable balance of cellular regeneration, the metabolic life and death of cells within organic bodies, naturally engages energy based Hopf bifurcation principles.  This happens differently in plants and animals, and is directly related to a number of processes, including RNA based protein synthesis and its relationship to the metabolism of sugars.  RNA molecules are nucleic acid compositions, helical molecules of sugar phosphates (ribose), which are ribbon-like scaffolding from which of genetic encoded molecular compositions extend.  They are most often single stranded.  In mammalian organisms like humans, these RNA coils 'unfold infold unfold' as they move within, and at times across, our cellular composition.  RNA produces proteins, which flux in and out of cellular plasma membranes. Proteins infold and unfold like RNA, to facilitate their movement. Together DNA, RNA, and proteins holistically calibrate metabolic energy within each cell, and across the extracellular matrix of the human body in harmony with the metabolism of holistic plant and animal life on Earth.



Natural environments exist inside our bodies, and around us.  Within these environments, metabolic energy is continuously calibrating.  The balancing of this metabolic energy, primarily by production and decomposition of proteins, shapes the equations for healthy sustainable growth. Exchange of energy across the molecular fabric within and around us, in all environments, calibrates sustainable relationships physically and perceptually.  Physical and perceptual energy translations calibrate in physiological gradations, across organic and inert molecules composed from the periodic table of elemental atoms on earth.  This chart of all the atoms composing the earth, has existed since 1869.  This periodic table contains 118 elements, 4 of which make DNA and RNA molecules, which guide organic processes, including the metabolism of proteins in organic life.  These four elements are hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen.  The basis of organic life begins with DNA, transcripting into RNA, which facilitates the making of proteins.  So as we understand the human organic body and bodies of human populations living on the planet, it becomes more clear how important it is to understand how animal and plant populations simultaneously exist within the dual composite molecular fabric of Earth, at all scales of life.

'Hotel Colorado'

...is an in-progress montage. It's about sleeplessness, and the only medicinal... looking in the mirror. I've always been able to sleep soundly. My favorite mornings have been when I've slept so comfortably with myself, that I wake up at the crack of dawn with the Circadian Rhythms of the sun's light. This montage conveys one of those mornings. The light snuck through the drapes, and there I was... next to a great mirror. It was just one of those moments I guess. Sometimes we share them, although most times I like to put the recorder down and realize keeping such moments to myself, can actually make them even more meaningful.


"When I walk within the earth and as I dream in
my sleep, I shape my story from the inside out.
I compose my ultra personal labyrinth, at
every fork in the road and path way
moving, on my own terms every
singular day. I am not an
author, I am the author."
