A town hall and square for Georgetown
"The Intention of this thesis is to explore how ideas of democracy can be revealed in architecture. Issues concerning the manner in which a democracy or representative government represents itself, as opposed to that of the autocratic structured government are central to beginning thesis study. This thesis will demonstrate that form is, indeed, informed by content in this opposition."
