dc.description.abstractCities hold a varied collection of individuals and provide unique adjacencies for those who live, work, and play in their urban fabrics. The relationship between the city and the individual has many facets, and this project is an exploration of one aspect of that relationship. What we do, and the way we do things, can be influenced by what we see and visually connect with as we move about the city.

This thesis thus explores the simple notion of having a view. A view being the gateway into understanding a city, and connecting to it. It is a means to reference oneâ s self to the city. The experience of a view takes on varied scales, and the fundamental initiative in this project has been the exploration of a private view out to a public vista.
