    A Kick In the Seat

    Thesis crawls on at a snail's pace. I am currently preparing for the preliminary review which is the first major critique of site, program, and design approaches. This review will require that I develop a method of looking at my thesis topic of inverting the roles and the introduction of a new group into an existing community.


    I am searching for words to describe what I want to do.

    I will then take these words and produce graphic representations. 

    I will take these graphics and then assemble them into a cohesive approach.

    The goal = 3 distinct approaches to the thesis that all are valid and can result in a successful project. 



    The simple word created the graphic which created the model which is crystalized into this:






    A mobius strip that is inverted and connected through this interlocking. 

    This of is only one example but the goal is to develop 3 approaches like this that I can then apply to the scale and site of the project. 

    All this and I still need to talk with my clients and (begin) finish my site model.

    Maybe October 29th will come late this year :)

About this Blog

A blog for an on going MArch Thesis Student Thesis is now in progress. This Blog will track the advancement through the program and record the many iterations that it takes to arrive at the final solution. My thesis is concerning how architecture can adapt to immigrant cultures and the current mixing of world cultures. It will be a fun ride!
