dc.description.abstractThe premise of this thesis is to examine the process and development of the evolution of words into built form. The abstract principle followed through the design process is the inspiration of nature as seen in the University of Maryland's Solar Decathlon entry LEAFHouse. This abstract design principle guided the team to design and build a cohesive and inspired house. The maturation process and development of this principle is studied in all aspects of the house from schematic design to materiality to detailing of the windows and doors. These elements combine to create an experience where this principle is evident in the final built form. These experiential and perceptive qualities are examined and documented.en_US
