Description/Abstract

"The success of the Marvelous Real is in the acknowledgement as existing of the pre-existed, implied or unnoticed and its revelation through unusual juxtaposition and interweaving narrated in a passive tone. The contention of this thesis is that if this type of juxtaposition of existing, pre-existed, implied and unnoticed is translated into an architectural concept where the tools of juxtaposition are space, form, program, materiality, and order it is possible to create, by addition and subtraction, a heightened reality of the historical layering of site."
