Architecture Thesis Prep

The intention of this thesis is to integrate a contemporary building type into a historical urban context. To show that contemporary construction can be sensitive can reinforce/clarify the existing architectural conditions. The intent is to create a firehouse that acknowledges and celebrates its place as a public building. By creating a unique building in the city this thesis hopes to clarify the role of the public building in the contemporary city structure without denying the historical roots from which it grew.
