An architecture of object((ive)(s)(ivity)): Operations on the urban field

Historically, architectural projects are based on a critically defined position within the culture of which they are a product. In the city of white noise there is no inherent direction or critically definable positions in the traditional sense, only limitless possibilities and options characterized by an inherent silence. It is the position of this thesis that it is the role of the architectural project to again inhabit the city on its own terms. Individual works of architecture must now begin to fill the void left by the demise of urban design. The city as field is approached in terms of matrix, frame, and module as an attempt to question the possibilities of the role of the architectural project within the city as it is currently found.
