The Adaptation of a Thunder Bay Grain Elevator
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is an exploration of spatial possibilities within a concrete terminal grain elevator in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Informed by research into the history, function, and construction of grain elevators, this investigation develops an approach to adaptation that would inhabit the interior spaces while preserving the sense of wonder and intrigue inherent in these structures. Using a program defined only as the most basic requirements for habitation, spatial possibilities are investigated to augment the aesthetic, monumental, and mysterious qualities of the structure, without domesticating it.
