Description/Abstract

By designing a series of house-like pavilions that leak (fluids and information) in specific ways, this thesis will develop an explicit lexicon for architects to employ in managing the ‘metadata’ that buildings perpetually emit. As a matter of design, these structures will operate on the leaked visible, non-visible, and absent metadata generated incidental to our occupation of buildings. The pavilions will ultimately probe similar sets of conditions, each conveying a radically different tone. Whether stopping or amplifying, scrambling or spoofing, deceiving or decoding, they seek to effect a measurable change on the metadata leaked from within. In order to objectively critique their effects, the pavilions will initially tackle a single metadata type each possessing a distinct tone. Following these tests the pavilions will probe three or more forms of metadata leakage simultaneously, testing architecture’s capacity to consciously manage multiple forms of leakage.
