Abstract
My thesis explores an idea about a spatial transformation within a volume. This transformation occurs internally and

externally with the introduction of light. The volumes become objects that can be studied, analyzed and trans-

formed again.

This constant transformation is guided by certain proportional relationships that are formed within the formal

construction of the cubic volume. Sections and models are generated to study aspects of the cube that may realize

an architecture of place.

A villa is used in this mode of study as a basic unit of human habitation. The hierarchical relationships within the

parts of the villa mirror that within the formal construction of the object and the interactions that are necessary

between the parts.
