Architecture and impermanence: The re-thinking of territories
Zbinden, Sven Eric
Master of Architecture
This thesis investigates the notion of 'deterritorialization' of which the focus is a house. This house is understood as a frame that is juxtaposed against systems that move through and overlap with the said house-frame. For the purpose of this study, the systems that interact with the house-frame have been limited to: light, wind, temperature, water, and sound. As these systems engage with the house-frame, one's previously perceived perception of the house is momentarily shifted and re-directed to another: space is seen as a process of intensities, difference, and durations. Such space allows for the spontaneity of discovery, forgetting, continuity, discontinuity, definition, and re-definition.
