Abstract
This thesis is an attempt in the exploration of an architectural idea of breaking away from a conventional column beam structure.

This idea led to a geometrical form which would be most stable, supported by itself, and also helps mitigate the lateral forces of wind and water in which it would stand. The conical form and scale achieved in the proposal would also help create a landmark to the city’s growing skyline.

It also acts as the point of threshold between land and water, providing an opportunity to sense water in a variety of ways.
