Beating the bounds
Pottorf, Michelle Debra
Master of Architecture
A framework capable of escaping the bipolarities inherent in traditional urban/suburban classifications is designed not only for the analysis of historical form, but also as a means of identifying more affective modes of operation for the architectural and urban planning professions in an increasingly complex environment. The boundaries that have been established through settlement patterns are then traversed in order to gain a better comprehension of their nature, although not for the purpose of reassuring their stasis, but rather to reveal their movements in an effort to project future transformations. Ultimately, the tactical method of visualization is employed in the dual attempt to represent the future and to prepare for entry into it.
