Abstract

There are two objects to which this book points:

One- a process in which both the designer and the designed take part.

The process was "sensed" in the making of the book itself, and the thesis was named. The book is at once an expression of this process, and a part of the process expressed.

Its nature is a result of a relationship described as reciprocal.

The other- a building.

In designing an addition to the Blacksburg Virginia Middle School, thoughts about light and surface, ground and figure, earth and sky guided decisions made in the process.

The result is regarded as both created and discovered.
