dc.description.abstract This thesis provides answers to the question: How can we, as architects, make a building of the environment in which it is built? The typology for the examination of this problem is multi-family housing. The theoretical premise and the unifying idea that guides the research is, “Architecture can bring about a greater use of the land by utilizing what is available in its location. It must respond to the environment and the materials in its own location.” The project ustification is, “Mass produced buildings are made with little respect to their environment. Understanding the site can help bring about better design.” A concurrent-transformitive strategy will be utilized in gathering qualitative and quantitative research. Careful study of the site in Minneapolis Minnesota will influence this research. Research and study on this project resulted in my thesis titled, “Nature in Architecture,” with a building of 317,581 square feet. en_US
