Date of Award
Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA)
Nick De Pace
Phenomenal Transparency was first identified from cubism painting and applied to architectural analysis by Colin Rowe and Slutzky in 1963. In terms of the discussion of form, this spatial quality synthesizes and demonstrates complex orders and organizations in a structural way which could be comprehend through experience. From the perspective of modern physics considering the traditional space as timespace continuum, the intentionally ambiguous space creates simultaneous perception and actively mutual relationship between human and time-space which is the essential forum of Phenomenology in current context.
The thesis bridges the theory of “Phenomenal Transparency“, the theory of “Phenomenology” in aspect of embody experience and the design application in “Landscape Architecture”, aiming at translating, representing and expanding this theory from the scope of landscape architecture and eventually achieving “the making of place“.
