The thesis investigates a means of establishing a more meaningful connection between the individual and the city through providing opportunities to experience urban space in an atypical manner. The atypical is created by an architecture which elaborates edge conditions and displaces the individual's conventional circulation within those edge conditions. Alternate methods of circulation are studied through an elaboration of their salient features, the appearance of those features in historical examples and in examples found in Seattle, Washington. A project for a ferry terminal in Seattle, Washington is presented as an illustration of these concepts.
