Abstract
This thesis document is the record of a quest for a foundation in a 'tactical making' that is both dense and lucid enough to sustain and filter hueristic discoveries, as well as manifest itself only through a residue or deposit, appropriately receding back into its proper domain. The quest required assimilation of a making mode that uses both an illusive density of proto fragments and a lucid means to ratiocination to build working channels between conjuctive and disjunctive modes of seeing, thinking, and experience. This necessary integration of reflective distance with the vitality of making is not an overt part of a modern humanities education and consequently my architecture education pushed me beyond known domains. In forming the narrative for this thesis I discovered that the architectural structure carries the story of the journey.
