Objects of architecture
Architecture has meaning and purpose when it is seen not as something that firmly must exist, but as the possibilities that a situation creates. I have not yet found that which is concretely architecture, but I can say that which is concretely architecture, but I can say that which could exist as beauty in this world. The design of everyday objects becomes architecture to me, whether it be of a building, a piece of jewelry, or a piece of pottery.
My undergraduate thesis was a study of the interaction of a curved wall and a straight wall, as autonomous elements. I proposed not only the spacial design but also how it is affected and changed by the site; namely the repetition and orientation.
In my graduate work, I undertook an investigation of the connection between old and new. My thesis suggests, in the form of three schemes or plans, what that connection could be and how it creates and affects architecture.
