Abstract
The practice of double-loaded corridors and circulation cores only serves to segregate spaces and develops no relationship between one space and another. In a contemporary society based on human interactions, should the conduit for delivering human-to-human connections be confined simply to notions of “horizontal circulation” and “vertical circulation”? Do we deserve better?

This thesis proposes that a measure of continuity can unify disparate spaces. This continuous architecture can join these spaces in series resulting in an instant and direct relationship of one space to another. Continuity can facilitate not only the interaction of spaces but also the interaction between occupants.
