For the past two decades, disciplinary discourse on con­sumerism has been largely focused on vast commercial spaces - the shopping mall, the airport - the "Junkfood" of architecture . When it has ventured into the realm of the do­mestic, it has largely been in service to the specific object. This thesis attempts to reconsider the role of representation relative to ideas of the generic object, and understands these objects as sources of authorship that can be architec­turally generative in a time when objecthood evades clear definition.
