Architecture After Everything Else: Origin Myths for Today

Roosevelt Island Public School 761

M.ARCH Thesis Harvard GSD 2011

Advisor Timothy Hyde

Current discourse in architecture has identified the present as a moment of lateness,  a cirsis point in search of a break. If we take invention, the promise of orgiinality, off the table, what are we left with? This proposal is to employ the self conscious process of origination to produce if not newness, distinct otherness in current practice. Architecture is a medium through which knowledge is organized and schematized and it is in its representation that this knowledge is most visible or legible. This project seeks to synthesize distinct points of origin through the medium of architectural representation.
