This thesis studies the relationship between the internal characteristics of the site, based on an existing set of artifacts, abandoned concrete railroad trestles, and external views of them. The project establishes orthogonal and non-orthogonal geometries in re-developing this urban site creating buildings that relate to the site, surroundings, and themselves. The physical, structural connections and spatial relationships reconcile the superimposition of geometries. Ultimately every decision in the project returns to the analysis of the site allowing for different buildings, people, and environments to interact as a single entity.
