Abstract
From Structure to Urban Frames

In the context of this thesis, the notion of frame is recognized as enclosing borders, or the outline of views, rather than as a load-bearing structural element.

This thesis investigates how frames can build urban connections and, at the same time, structure sequences of movement and define a path with a variety of spatial experiences.
