Description/Abstract

The introduction of emoji to language creates a universal form of communication through expression. The thesis posits that with the contemporary context of a rising digital and visual language, the elastic architectural design language has the capability to be updated. The updated design language is translated from the existing context of emoji and reflects its pragmatics and characteristics. The duck, based on form, and the decorated shed, based on signage, are no longer adequate to project meaning on architecture. The symbolic language of emojis calls for a new model: the duckerated shed. This thesis will use the house typology as a testing ground to test this new language.
