Description/Abstract

This thesis posits with the contemporary context of a rising digital and visual dialect, the emoji, the elastic architectural design language has the capability to be updated. The duck, based on form, and the decorated shed, based on signage, are no longer adequate to project meaning on architecture. The emoji is neither purely symbol nor sign and thus it becomes a fusion of the two: a duckerated shed. By referencing a familiar language rather than canonical architectural precedents, those outside of the discipline can better relate to the buildings they inhabit.
