Abstract
A series of chance encounters with the city of Cleveland leads to a non-objective reading of this place. It is an intuitive approach, an attempt to understand the complexity of a city in fragments and to change the city's perception of itself.

This thesis is a reciprocal play between conceiving and creating, revealing their close interrelation. It is an inquiry into how our imagination transforms our built and not-built environment.

To be an architect is to dwell at the interface between the imaginary and the real, to draw from both worlds.
