Description/Abstract

"The discipline of architecture all too often merely grasps at social reality, and rarely endeavors to rationally analyze the conditions of the society in which architectural production takes place. I pose, however, that establishing a working concept of cultural production is absolutely necessary before any architectural work can take place. The structure of this proposal therefore extends as a developed, rational argument, defining the marginalizing nature of social relations in the present culture, defining how current architectural forms operate to reinforce these relations, investigating a recuperative program and precedents and finally situating this work within an appropriate site. All of these parts are essential elements within this thesis, and cannot proceed without them. It is only through this process that an assertion for an architecture for the recuperation of spatial production of social relations within the everyday can occur."
