The Third Year Project will examine the grounding of architecture in the specificity of site, the occupation of space through use, and the expression of architecture through its materiality, construction, and building systems. Through analysis (site), research (precedent + structure + material) and design, this project will examine the way in which architectural space frames surfaces for actions. Critical attention will be paid to the relationship of the body to space and water at multiple scales.

Tectonic exploration of structure, material, and environmental systems give critical definition to the creation of space, and must be considered integral to the conceptual design process.
