dc.description.abstract Ground is fascinating in that it is something that every single person in the world experiences every day of their life in some form or another. For this reason it is crucial that architects have a clear understanding of ground. We came from a time where we placed objects (houses etc) on the ground. But there is another type of construction that can occur where the ground itself can be manipulated through cutting, levelling and raising. This can achieve a lot of results such as linking space and creating space, creating renewable energy, and providing irrigation for agriculture, to name a few. The essay sets out to examine and discover the various advantageous ways of manipulting ground through exploring a range of projects and texts. en_US
