The Thesis

discusses ways of transforming motion, found in bodies, into architecture, by clarifying complex structural superimpositions. It addresses the relationship between movement found in natural bodies and urban structures and its parallels in architecture in relation to time and external forces. Transformational motion can be found in every element.

The thesis defines and structures site-specific parameters, and transforms them into architectonic guidelines. Through the integration of a specific program, these guidelines are translated into a school of performing art.
