Date of Defense 1998-09-14 Availability unrestricted AbstractA wall is a primordial architectural artifact. The power
and potential of a wall lies in its ability to transcend
the necessities of construction and become a generator
of architecture. A wall can be more than a plane in space,
it can sculpt light and provide housing for various
activities within its tectonic dimension. These additional
functions can create an experience of both solidity of a
wall as well as the possibility of inhabiting a wall.
The creation of a "place".
A wall also possesses the ability to create a sense of
place. This can occur not only through the provision of
habitable space, but also through the provision of bearing
points for other structural members, illuminable surfaces,
or zones of both visual and physical penetration. Within
this thesis project, the wall generates a stair, and
together, they begin to produce the rest of the architecture.
At first there is a wall. Then there is the apartment.
