Abstract: This thesis explores the parallel relationships of how architecture and sculpture inhabit the landscape. Using Storm King Art Center as a case study, three relationships between object and landscape are analyzed and used as the basis for the design of artist workshops and living space, allowing for the creation of large-scale outdoor sculpture as part of an artist fellowship and residency program. The three comparisons analyze different ways an object relates to its context, using the categories: Object In Landscape, Object As Landscape, and Object From Landscape. These comparisons are translated from precedents in sculpture to architecture, and then further into the structure and construction details of the design. The culminating proposal brings together concepts from site history, site precedent, and an analysis of the relationship to site in a proposal designed to test these theories.
