Cultivating Architecture / Donn Holohan


Pencil Drawing

The premise of my thesis was that architecture in reality has little to do with building. Rather it is a reactive and continually developing framework that is an expression of our collective philosophies. I surmised that as architects, we should become the facilitators of good systems – questioning fi rst the ethical and moral value of that framework, not simply the structures that are a product of that intangible construction.

This thesis never concluded in a building. Instead the product was a set of alternative realities that are the result of a rational deconstruction and imagining of the built environment.
