Seattle, King, Washington, United States
STUDENT'S PROJECT STATEMENT: Through time, an individual's daily perception of space becomes conditioned, which changes the relationship with architecture from a conscious one to an unconscious one. This is problematic for architecture, since architecture depends upon conscious engagement. Moreover, it is through our daily experiences in the built world that we draw meaning and learn from. This thesis project explores these issues within a school typology that attempts to continually de-familiarize itself, thus creating renewed experiences within an always-changing, stimulating environment.
INSTRUCTOR'S BRIEF: The thesis is an intellectual offering to the discipline of architecture that provides a critical perspective of its current practices and offers an alternative, visionary proposition. the goal for the Spring Quarter is to complete the production of a design project in which to embody the propositions of the thesis and to demonstrate its value and far-reaching potential. This work completes work begun in the Fall Quarter. By the end of Spring Quarter students are expected to have a complete thesis book documenting a year's worth of theorization, research, analysis, and design work, as well as final posters and physical models for a gallery show.
