Architecture Episodes - A Dialogue for Occupancy

Public Deposited
Resource Type
  • This thesis will examine the interaction between constructed environments and individuals through an exploratory design process. Through the investigation of past and contemporary architecture processes, this research will question our sensorial experience of built space: how scale impacts our perception, material influences our choices, architectural element can create a feeling of belonging, and how conception of a designed space impacts quality of life.Explored through twelve vignettes: Context, Shared Space, Behaviour, House, Home, Belonging, Scale, Material, Qualities, Poetic, Dialogue, and Happiness this project aims to apply these themes to the design of a small family house. This single family detached home with a floor area of approximately one hundred square meters will be situated in eastern Quebec, on the coast of the Gaspe Bay. Through the design of this house, I will study how the qualities of what is construct can be the dialogue between occupant and space.
