This thesis is concerned with architecture and its changes through four seasons.
It is about drawing new images of a building in different seasons. Like trees change their
leaves in seasons and like people change their clothes in seasons, this project is about
architecture changing its architectural elements in four seasons. It all began with an
imagination of how a building would respond differently in each of the four seasons.
The project, located at the waterfront of Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia, is an
Aquatic Center with swimming pools, changing areas, saunas, fitness area, and massage
areas. The Aquatic Center creates different images to its visitors through surrounding natures
and their changes, architectural elements and their movements, visitors and their activities.
The goal was to provide people unique and different experiences every time they visit.
