'My intention is to investigate the reestablishment of the civic center within a typical suburban town of a major metropolitan city. This new 'town square" should be the seat of local law and government, the place of the town's library, site of public services, along with some commercial and residential functions. My goal is to take a site occupied by an architectural ruin which sits as a composition of objects in a field, and by the manipulation of the landscape, along with the introduction of a new piece of architecture, create an ordered composition which begins to become the towns civic center."
