dc.description.abstract This thesis deals with 3 main subjects and the accompanying issues....The first of these subjects is that of memory. The author examines his memories of the site over a time period of nearly 20 years. Interaction with the site and its immediate context is recalled, in an attempt to allow these memories to inform the design of the objects and spaces that will occupy the site. The hope is that the ensuing architecture, present the spirit of these memories even as the site and its context continue to undergo change.The second subject deals with the notion of placing multiple family units, with varying needs, onto one site. In this case the three families are actually subsets within a larger family. The design attempts to accommodate 3 brothers and their families onto the site. The issues dealt with include the investigation of public and shared spaces, versus separate more private spaces and the transition between them. It explores the idea of preserving identity while being part of a larger entity.The third subject deals more specifically with the idea of these spaces that are shared. It looks at how natural elements, like water, air, wind and sun can be incorporated into these cores of activity and interaction. What are the elements and activities that occur within and shape these spaces.The intent is to create residential spaces that respond to these issues as well as those of context and the development of an undeveloped site, and address them in the design process of the final solution.
