dc.description.abstract In After the City, Lars writes about the "function of the tourist behavior" where all neglect to "use the building---they photograph, read about it, and listen to tour guides...they don't look at it."1 This passive 'lack of interaction' makes me wonder as to what architecture is or where its potential lies. Is it merely the background upon which scenes take place, like the set to a play? I think architecture has more potential than that. It is possible for it to be the place of interaction; or rather it can create a moment of interaction. I propose that through making or interaction this tourist behavior is not present...architecture is. The following thesis explores the moment between dweller and dwelling, the point where the potentiality of making or becoming occurs. My pursuit of architecture lies in this 'making of potentiality'. 1Lars Lerup, After the City, (Cambridge, MIT Press, 2000), p. 34
