Description/Abstract

"This thesis proposes an investigation into the fragmented city and what Henri Lefebvre terms as the specialization embedded in the creation of the contemporary urban condition... The museum for censored photography is proposed to occupy Pennsylvania Avenue, a threshold in the city of Philadelphia... The architectural joint or hinge becomes the vehicle for the spatial "insertion.""
