A Paradigm For The Construction Of Architectural Narrative, Sarah F. Holmes

Architecture Thesis Prep

How does one develop a relevant architectural narrative within a society that traditionally has been and remains highly pluralistic?

Architectural meaning arises through the dialogue between a physical and a narrative structure.

This proposal concerns the inquiry into the physical and metaphysical structure of space. In this thesis I propose a system of analysis resulting in the creation of structure from which an architectural narrative may be revealed.
