dc.description.abstractThe "Impetus of Locomotion" takes the implication of a force in which movement happens. This thesis takes this connotatively resonant idea in which movement is construed and creates a static definition of it in a building, in this case a high speed rail station - a literal translation of movement. Through design interventions of modes of transportation, wayfinding, and architectural form, the impetus of locomotion is defined.en_US

dc.description.abstractgeneralArchitectural movement is an abstract concept in which the way certain forms and spaces are shaped and/or arranged in such a way that creates or invokes a feeling of motion in the architecture itself while remaining static. The goal of this thesis is to achieve this principle in a fundamental way using those arrangements and forms. On the technical side of my project scope, I have researched and implemented the literal modes of movement which would culminate in one location. These concepts of both architectural and literal modes of movement come together in the form of an intramodal station in Houston, Texas.en
