Abstract: 

This thesis-as-project (project-as-thesis) is an inquiry into the human connection with the world, it asserts that the occupants of space have a critical role to play in the creation of architecture. Through in depth research and creative writing an understanding of the embodied experience of the built environment, and the architects’ impact on this experience is undertaken. A selected site and program are used in an attempt to engage more concretely with the issues at hand. The work is organized by three major interconnected trajectories of thought, which are either read independently from one another or as a whole. The process of deriving a potential architecture is, in this thesis, the project, a ‘stream of consciousness’ architecture. These non-linear trajectories form a critical interrogation of the role of the architect.
