dc.description.abstract Void implies an edge or boundary condition, an absence within a substance, a space between. It is defined not by what it is but by what it is not. The act of filling in, of infilling, be it with new structures, defined park space, or even just a name is a sign of progress in that it connects and makes whole that which already exists. It densifies. But here density is not defined by simply filling a space, building a building, creating a unified facade along the street. Here density is a fluctuating state rather than a prescribed construction. It is measured by its ability to transform and to incite activity. Density is cast. The process of casting becomes the methodology both for analyzing the void and bringing a density to it.
