Materializing the invisible: A return to form-making


In an era of information technology and dematerialization, our sense for materiality is significantly jeopardized. It is particularly disturbing when placed within the context of architecture--a mode of form-making typically fixed on the objective of building. In light of this, my thesis pursues questions of stability and contingency as agents of form-making; what can be done to render invisible, dematerialized forces as visible and tangible? My investigations suspend in a design proposal positioned on the edge between city grid and highway, where flows relative to this site were studied and re-invented as a source for form-making
