Contemplative composition in landscape: a mark making methodology
This thesis is one which sits within methodology rather than putting emphasis on concluding with a building. The methodology was developed from a curiosity to define and understand my own personal approach to the architectural design process. This thesis questions what the drawn line means for the surface it is drawn onto and how this can develop a connection and relationship with the landscape. This thesis uses the term 'landscape' to define a plane on which an inhabitation of space can be imagined. Whether it is tangible or intangible landscape, the lines drawn in, on or above it is a direct response to the way the surface feels and appears. Through this thesis, I will be pursuing a deeper understanding of my own relationship with architecture by broadening my knowledge of the concepts of the line and landscape.
