This thesis explores the origins of the House and Temple form through the design

of a house. The design looks to the theory of the original elements of architecture

being the hearth, roof, mound and woven enclosure. Specific focus is given to the

woven aspect of this theory, which is expounded upon in the wood structure and

partitions of the house. The house exhibits the characteristic syntax of weaving

with orthogonal geometric relationships and a hierarchy of elements. The structure

and spaces of the house emerge from a rigid pattern grid defining the site and the

historic temple symbolism of the double square.
