dc.description.abstract Through the impression of entropic forces upon built form the residual effects of time erode at the taut crisp lines of facade. Contemporary architectural tectonics produce an image embedded with hygienic obsessiveness. This disdain for grit projects an over idealized conception of nature that denies its authority. All form weathers and decays. Through using a contemporary palette with an inclination to accept weathering, the image of a building becomes an object painted upon by environment instead of succumbing to it. The ambition of this thesis is to leverage opaqueness and whiteness as a canvas for weathering. In order to understand the terms/inputs to produce a set of studies investigating the aesthetic potentials of these. Then to deploy them to provide a commentary on the grid and line based architectural tectonics/facades, seeking contrast with the dominant contemporary methods of construction and representation characterized by their emissivity and glossiness and which themselves leverage line and transparency.
