Abstract: 

The thesis (placing), preceded by the abstract (drawn from), situates itself as the site for our discussion concerning the role of the Scholar, the Architect, and the previously un-surveyed grounds in-between.

This thesis examines a new role to be performed in the construing and constructing of architecture. Educated in the Trivium: Grammar, Rhetoric, and Logic, and the Quadrivium: Arithmetic, Geometry, Music, and Astronomy, the Architect/Musician/Machinist/Scholar comes together to fabricate the hinge between the idea and the physical manifestation of Architecture.

Through the lens
of contemporary, widely available technology, we examine the potential for a new role in architecture that straddles historic and present scholarship, and simultaneously assesses the role of increased power in individual manufacturing possibilities and their infinitely scalable nature.
