Abstract

A: Architecture is a world of making.

B: Architecture is a world of making the thinking.

A: In my world of architecture, the thinking-of-making is a conscious mental development, while the thinking generated afterwards is autonomous. Hitherto in the design process, I am free from any burdens of the unpredictable and uncontrollable afterward "thinking".

B: In my world of architecture, the making-of-thinking is structurally dependent on the thinking-of-making. Moreover, I want to direct the thinking of "the making" towards a specific cultural dimension. I enjoy the restrictions imposed by it.

The above dialogue comprised the basic subject discussed in this thesis. The thesis projects are examinations of the two design approaches.
