dc.description.abstractSimply stated, I am attempting to discover what "architecture" is. The structure of the thesis argument is based upon the recognition, understanding, and integration of philosophical convictions and architectural language. It involves the acceptance of personal and objective definitions of architecture; it involves a foundation of meaning in architectural philosophy; it involves the use of an architectural vocabulary to create a language that "speaks" of "architecture"; it involves a process of conventions and conceptions; it involves a methodology distinguishing between intentions and perceptions.In addition, the thesis attempts to recognize "architecture" as having three components: architecture as philosophy, based upon convictions and revealing meaning; architecture as art, inspiring aesthetics; and architecture as science, involving constructability and technology."We shall not cease from exploration; and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time."-T.S.Elliot.
