dc.description.abstract We, as inhabitors of a built society, are surrounded by spaces which go wholly unnoticed as we pass through them. These are the spaces of transition and passage, but by no means are they spaces without importance. The spaces can be seen as having been misplaced by the changes to the environment around them. By studying the cues left behind in these spaces, and attempting to respond to the conditions presented in them, we can reinstill in the spaces a new life, a new architecture. This reinstallation of architecture should be an accentuation of the existing, rather than the replacement of the space. This thesis attempts to accomplish the task of reinhabiting an existing building by first analyzing the archaeological object through the reordering of found artifacts. The analysis culminates in the reinvention of the building spaces through the addition of five walls.
