THE FOLLOWING THESIS HAS ATTEMPTED TO INVESTIGATE THE POSSIBILITIES OF AN ARCHITECTURE BASED IN TRADITION AND IN INNOVATION. AN ARCHITECTURE
THAT NEITHER IMITATES NOR MIMICS, BUT ONE THAT RESULTS FROM CONSTRUCTION AND THE NATURE OF MATERIALS USED RATHER THAN FROM THE APPLICATION OF
DECORATIVE ELEMENTS TO DISGUISE THE STRUCTURE OF THE BUILDING. THE SUCCESS OF A PROJECT RESULTS FROM THE ARCHITECT'S CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE TRADITIONS OF THE REGION IN WHICH THE PROJECT EXISTS, INFORMED BY LOCAL TRADITIONS YET NOT ILLUSTRATING A REVIVALIST FORM OF VERNACULAR CONSTRUCTION.
