Date of Defense 2006-09-15 Availability unrestricted AbstractThrough the exploration of designing a small residential building along side a three-story mixed-use center for individuals and families newly diagnosed with diabetes, I studied a variety of ways to architecturally embrace the essence of balance. Throughout this thesis the quests of understanding “balance” accelerated and complicated most of the decision making. Architecturally, this thesis explored the balance between the public city and private residence, between historical architecture and the proposal of new construction, and the balance between solid voids and the path of circulation. The pursuit of balance was even examines at the detail level; how do you find a balance at the integration of two of more materials.
Objects and visual situations are most stimulating when they achieve an appropriate balance.
