Description/Abstract

"This thesis is an investigation into the role of architecture in the imageability of place. Architecture as built form acts as the structure by which an observer measures his or her position relative to the environment. A highly imageable structure, therefore, has the ability to significantly aid the observer in navigation through the built environment. This investigation focuses on the elements that allow a structure to become imageable and, ultimately, how architecture can use these elements to achieve a higher imageability of place."
