||This thesis examines how an architectural problem with specific social and site constraints can be
addressed by a formal solution. In the process of exploring formal possibilities, computer imaging
techniques were used to complement traditional models and drawings. Because the methods reveal different
aspects of the project, they elicit different perceptions.
The project yielded insights into the use of representational techniques in design. Changing media keeps
the designer alert to alternate ways of understanding. Successive manifestations can keep the identity
of the design shifting: useful for exploring variants, but antithetical to resolution. In presentation,
traditional representations can make the work more legible. If traditional and digital media are shown
together, they must be arranged to complement rather than compete with each other.
