Date of Defense 1998-09-16 Availability restricted AbstractArchitecture should strive to create a dialogue between the history of architecture and its future.
This dialogue is really a mosaic of interconnections formed by our conceptions of context and order. These interconnections strive to be transparent so as to introduce a level of complexity that allows for a multitude of readings and is in constant variation as provided by the site, the inhabitants and the building. It is thru these transparent interconnections that dialogue is enriched.
The project has been driven by a reciprocal struggle between specific site conditions, and the development of tectonic pieces that order, clarify and sometimes veil a larger whole. Whose end is to connect with a larger whole and elevate its seemingly simple pieces to a level of complexity that is greater than the sum of those parts.
