Lower Shore Battery Interpretive Centre: Graffiti Writers, Wreck Divers, and Transatlantic Trade History at the York Redoubt
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis lays out the rationale, goals, and design of a center for graffiti writers, scuba divers, and an exhibition on trans-Atlantic trade history at the York Redoubt, near Halifax, Nova Scotia. It begins from personal interests and preoccupations across literature and architecture, and from that foundation builds a theory of how architectural design can work to bring out the meaning latent in the infrastructure and other functional spaces that make up the world around us. It engages with the history of previous architectural design movements that have been indebted to literary criticism and differentiates itself from them. It engages with history through the technique of montage and the ideas of Harold Innis. It concludes with an overview of the design proposal.
