In reading that particular line from Whitman one immediately realizes that to study an architectural object takes on an air of subjectivity. To assume architecture is intrinsic to site materials, or any other variable is incorrect. Rather, it emanates from so many indescribable pieces making the whole. Taking this thought a step further and introducing history, one can suggest that just as history is sometimes transparent, the same may apply to architecture. Since one event is not necessarily dependant on another, this thesis can be viewed in much the same manner.
An architectural study of the old and new, the in-between and how one element can affect the other but stand apart as its own was the focus of this thesis.
