Rational Rush !

The interest of this thesis lies between experience and rush.

Throughout architectural history, we locate in the most unique but also miserable period of time. We believe modernism is one of the most reasonable architectural theories because of its development and efficiency . On the other hand, there are other architects who believe in designing with memory and feelings through the object.

This thesis proposes a third design methodology by breaking down the experience (conventional design) and memory (unconventional design). However, the third design methodology’s aim does not necessarily rely in giving a direction or answer to current architectural problems, instead it exaggerates the similarities and differences between the two, and gives us a better understanding of what architecture could become in the future.
