A thesis is original.

A thesis for me is the process of finding my hidden voice toward society and making it stands in my own language. Not saying the first or second language I speak, but the unique language that I have created after years of learning and experiences in both the Architecture field and across the other disciplines. A thesis then introduces it to the world.

A thesis is living in the present, it reveals the current stage of my perception of big concerns towards the world-scale phenomenon and my focus towards how it relates to the individuals like me or who I might know.

As we were restricted to stay in our own homes due t o the COVID-19 pandemic, the spaces where we once spent a few waking hours now encapsulate most of our existence. Our relationship with dwelling and the community has unconsciously changed as a result.

My thesis considers the life of the elderly during the pandemic within the dwelling and community as experienced in an aging neighborhood located in Beijing, China.
