Thesis Project

The suburban focus on consumption in the modern American capitalist paradigm translates into a built environment characterized by shopping destinations "anchored" by national retail brands and likewise a disenfranchised local population with no differentiating factors to really anchor the place.  I propose a new "third place" that gives the suburban locale a real anchor that, using the principles of Kenneth Frampton's "Critical Regionalism," focuses attention on the environs, tectonics, and materials particular to the location.  The thesis will invoke public discourse over the economic conditions of Post-Industrial, Late Capitalism that have generated the prevailing ethos that has hijacked urban design and likewise generated outdated, dying regional shopping centers.
