dc.description.abstractThe art of painting opens vast expressive possibilities for architecture, wherein architecture can produce a more conducive atmosphere for the contemplation of painting. The subtle affinities between the two fields stirred me to explore the individualistic expressiveness of the sensory realm in a painting and how it can inspire an architect. My thesis starts from an interest in a painting of Kandinsky's. The painting "Yellow, Red, Blue" stirred my curiosity in the potency of its beauty and made me ask questions in regards to what I can capture, learn and express architecturally. The aim is to design a Contemporary Art Center to be situated within the fabric of Virginia Tech campus. Throughout the various stages of design, the finality of the project resulted from dealing with the various inputs from: Kandinsky's painting as a catalyst and inspirer to the design, to the contextual issues and ways of urban integration and also dealing with the nature of the project's function and programmatic needs.en_US
