Abstract
My thesis looks to define a harmonious relationship between architecture and nature. The critical intersection of the realm of land and the realm of building is what has most influenced my design process. This place where building meets nature needs to be both meaningful and balanced. The investigation involves how to respect the current condition and compliment it with an architecture serving as connection for the human experience.
