This PhD does not intend to create or record a formula for a design process, but rather document the new consciousness about our practice which has arisen through the research.
The character of the work of TAKA architects is derived largely via the influence of our particular spatial history. This spatial history has cultivated (and been cultivated by) our field of fascinations – which underlies the architectural fragments of our work.
The research will communicate how the ideas related to this new consciousness operate in the actual design process through case study examples. The documentation of this new consciousness and the explication of (some facets of) our design process is my contribution to knowledge.
