Abstract
The design process is a means to an end.

It is the vehicle one uses to reach a destination.

It is driven by past experiences, the advice from others or intuition.

The thesis is a journey.

For some, the destination is known before the journey even begins.

For others, the destination is found somewhere along the way.

For me, the destination is in sight, yet it constantly moves just out of reach.

Each new discovery demands further exploration.

In the journey, the project represents all the discoveries made along the way.

Each step forward is an attempt to reinforce that which the traveller has already discovered or to inform the traveller to change directions.

Thus, what is important about a journey is not only how one gets there, but also what is discovered along the way.
