dc.description.abstract The Charleston Single House's form is explored as a topical communicative artifact. The Charleston Single House, a single family urban house type, indigenous to Charleston, South Carolina, and almost 300 years old, is analyzed through its constituent elements of form. The architectonics of each element, in relation to other elements and the urban fabric, is examined. Knowledge gained from the analysis is used to manipulate the architectonics of the elements within the constraints of the type to produce a modern Charleston Single House. These topical artifacts are proposed as infill for a decaying neighborhood, consistent to the type and desiring renovation. Socio-political and methodological concepts derived from Thomas Jefferson and Hannah Arendt--focused on history, the public realm, and artifacts--grounding the thesis are enumerated.
