Description/Abstract

If we are to understand that dwelling, a function of orientation is an ultimate goal of humankind, and that architecture's primary purpose is to provide this 'existential foothold', how can this be accomplished in an age when the very tools of orientation and it's components (time, place, and identity) be oriented to their surroundings through an increasing detachment from the natural world, how can architecture thus be used as a didactic mechanism ideology, developed through the historical lineage of the wilderness concept, will produce an opportunity for an architectural intervention to confront the primal act of orientation while simulating grafting into a relevant societal context.
