Abstract

Nature and Culture, two apparently opposite worlds, seem to be in a constant state of collision. As their feed-back produces the landscape, their stark differences conceal the increasingly complex game at play between the two. In the age of the Anthropocene, when humans have reshaped the earths crust, atmosphere, and species' evolutionary trajectories, the existencial role of the built environment needs to be re-evaluated. The thesis develops in the apparent line that separates culture and nature. Exposing how time, weather, geology, and darkness interact with architecture, order, and human desire for stability and illumination.
