tourism, Nashville, image, narrative, experience, pavilion
This thesis seeks to utilize the technique of allegorical image in understanding both the past and present histories of Nashville. By collaging aspects of past and present, the images produced seek to present the emerging alternative. This otherness constructs an in between in which the narratives of both instances begin to merge and mutate. These collages establish a landscape of Nashville which is no longer constricted temporally or spatially, remaining open to interpretations and resisting a clear sense of closure. The designs that I propose are meant to clarify the neglected traumas and occurrences of the past to demonstrate that these moments are not so far removed from the present consciousness as most people would consider. In this way, the pavilions attempt to act as lenses that provide an apparatus in which dialectical images could therefore be produced and experienced.
