dc.description.abstractThis thesis began as a search, an exploration into creating a building using strong geometric forms that were defined by the structure. the thesis was tested, and retested, forgotten then restarted. every iteration through models, sketches, and drawings was a stepping stone for the final product ; a thesis. A thesis of exploring form defined by its assembly and the inherent questions, problems and ideas that arise. the program for this thesis is a hotel that is comprised of three parts. the pedestal which houses the lobby, is rooted to the earth. the framework which houses the guest rooms, embraces the sky. lastly, the buttresses which house the services and vertical transport, are the connection between the earth and sky. The true question of this thesis was when or how to stop? At what point did the figure become appropriate? It became a question of aesthetic judgement, and how did the building want itself to be? In the end the thesis is to make a building that shows a glimpse of its true nature.en_US
