MetadataShow full item record
This thesis seeks to examine the relationship between landscape and dwelling through the exploration of the oppositions of wilderness and civilization. It questions how architecture can be a mediator for a life alternating between an uncultivated landscape and an organized society. How can architecture enable habitation without domination? This thesis questions how climate and landscape inform the way architecture facilitates nature as a means of understanding, happiness, and physical revival by enhancing one’s connection to place. Through the exploration of structure, sustainability, architectural detail, the thesis will place architecture as the solution to coexistence and appreciation of nature in those who are accustomed to control.
