dc.description.abstract This thesis investigates the role of architecture upon the perception of its subject. It is particularly concerned with the perceptual “flickers” that result when the subject is confronted with simultaneous and opposed socio-spatial phenomena. It asserts that when the subject is confronted with such phenomena, a single state flickers to the foreground while all others recede to the background of perception, causing the subject not only to recontextualize socio-spatial awareness in light of the foregrounded state, but also to labor in order to totalize the sum of all states. Ultimately, this thesis is interested in activating the subject and creating an experience that is not defined physically but rather perceptually, not accessible through instant apprehension but rather through labored comprehension. It tests these assertions and advances these interests by speculating on a living center that foregrounds the impact of geometry and form on the subject’s perception of private and public.
