Abstract
Bacchus, Vulcan and Metis walk into a bar . . .

The following dialogues took place beginning in January of this year. In a series of investigations through drawing, physical constucts and research, the project began to take shape. With the help of Bacchus, Vulcan and Metis, the building was given a body of its own. Ideas of the way a building ages, as well as the way the parts of the building relate to the whole, are the basis of the thesis. The building is a sort of beast with two heads: the foundry, and the speak-easy [with cunning navigating the straits].
