Abstract
This thesis explores the boundaries and transitions within architecture. What makes a solid boundary? And what blurs the lines of transition in between? Possibilities were explored and limits pushed through the studying of elements such as thickness, transparency, material, texture, and light. The result is an architectural space in which a person can experience nature, while being separate from it. The building becomes a transition into nature while also a part of the landscape. The intent of this thesis is to bring the site together with the thesis idea and program in a cohesive way.
