dc.description.abstract Hybridization is to gain the advances from the Alien. Mutation is to evolve oneself to be an Alien. "Foreignness" may simply be an offset from the "horm" and "common sense" of a regional convention. Confronting with the foreign is an opportunity to stimulate mutation and hybridity, the mechanisms expected to lead towards architectural and urban invention. In this thesis project, through historical study and design experimentation, the exploration of a design process through productive interventions in mutation and hybridization provides a proactive guideline for future design applications.
