Phenomenal reading of place: Greenway Plaza and an architecture of the residual (Texas)
Hoffmann, Dean Palmer
Master of Architecture
Phenomenal readings are used to identify the distance between the apprehension of place and place as a repository of design intents, to test a thesis that modern urban developments manifest meaning as a built language containing all the processes of understanding integral with an orchestration of perceptive sense. The usage of the phenomenal reading as a method in operation should place facets of the positivistic model of architecture into question.
