dc.description.abstractA comprehensive understanding of the development of the architectural detail is currently lacking in the professional education of architects. Detail development is normally seen as the end product of an architectural design process. In academic settings the majority of time is devoted to abstract generalizations, parti development, and schematic design. This thesis will reverse the typical architectural design process by taking a detail to a design. By using the proposed Washington, D.C. `Purple-line' light-rail initiative as a vehicle for study, a framework to support an in-depth exploration of tectonic, conditional details will be developed. These prototypical details will require adaptations due to location or function, yet will need to exhibit a unifying language for the overall identification of the line. This proposition will pursue an alternative to the traditional architectural design methodology. By implementing detail development at the beginning of the design process, a deeper educational experience can be achieved.en_US
