  • Architects draw.Drawing is fundamental to architectural thinking, communication and organization and this thesis explores the nature of architectural drawing by using drawing methods as a form of research. Architecture has the capacity to position information in relationships that are a catalyst for creating productive dialog between inter-connected technological, environmental and societal systems.The speculative spaces produced in this work create multiple narratives through complexity on this site. As such, the drawings of the project are an examination of the abstract spatial possibilities, with attention to the quantifiable needs on such a challenging site. The speculative spaces produced through this process can be read as new narratives and new organizational structures for spatial thinking in the North. Drawing from local cultural practices, this thesis investigates alternative drawing methods for an environment that is not easily perceived or measured by known architectural conventions.
