dc.description.abstract It could be argued that architecture in the era of mass production and the great societal changes of the last century or so has left us surrounded by many repetitive and rectilinear buildings, especially in mass housing projects. The thesis aimed to establish the reason for this and through the texts of several writers on architecture show how this type of space is perhaps at odds with our natural and pre-cognisant understanding of space. The thesis further, hoped to define some of the qualities that these primordial spaces contain at the micro and macro level and how a renewed expression of these spaces may have a greater relevance in our continuously changing world. Concluding, in part that space should be fluid, changeable and adaptable, the thesis hoped to be expressed in the design project, where a large disused clothing factory would tie together programmes for housing, education, agriculture and recreation; using fluid, changeable and adaptable spaces and components to create cohesion at tactile micro and homogeneous macro levels. en_US
