Abstract
This thesis is an investigation in taking the architectural element ‘wall’ and celebrating it in the design of a building.

Walls are necessary elements in the urban fabric, and as such, should be celebrated. They enrich the space that they surround and enrich that which surrounds them as part of the urban fabric.

The project involves first creating walls with presence, then enclosing them in a manner that reveres them, that preserves their significance and emphasizes their presence.
