dc.description.abstract Between the individual and the site exists a philosophical space wherein architecture defines the nature, the edge, of humankind's self understanding. Beyond the philosophical exists the physical reality of humankind's place: the topographical/geological specificities of the site and the man-made redefinitions of the site. It is within the physical reality that architecture, and the architect, as individual, must participate but it is the philosophical space wherein the idea is constructed that will inform the direction of the physical reality of architecture. I propose an investigation of the relationship between landscape and architecture. The focus will be on an architecture that will engage the physical realities of the site and the philosophical space of the imagination. My process/program will rely on the photographic manipulation of the site; the analysis of the lines resulting from such manipulation and the manipulation of these lines to define an architectural space.
