dc.description.abstract This thesis proposes an architectural project as an active field in which the process is indisociable from the actual material object: an imaginative network that adapts and reorganises itself in response to its own realisation. Both the process and the project are continuous and continuously developing. This thesis transforms a ruinous site of five abondoned grain silos into a study of metonymy, that is, the interchangability of different parts in order to represent the whole. Every system basic to architecture is designed into each building and the site entire so that the following five elements are both embodied and varied: 1/f noise, physical vacuums, active representation, scale and neural-networks.
