PART I - GENERAL CONDITIONS INTRODUCTION
One of the most awaited part in the undergraduate Architecture student course is the Thesis
 –
 the final requirement for the design courses that integrates everything what the student has learned in all the years in college. This daunting challenge where the student goes through a final test for competence is meant to
analyze the student’s mind
as to his/her capacity of work and depth of understanding of what architecture really is. The Thesis project is of major importance to the education of an architect. It provides an opportunity for the student to systematically explore a coherent line of investigation of issues relevant to the field of architecture. It also requires dedication, conviction and a commitment to a strong work ethic. In the field of architecture such intellectual investigations have implications that result from a critique and re-examination of the role of architecture as a critical participant in the conditioning of public and private space and the human condition. Thus, while the Thesis originates in design philosophies and concepts developed and articulated through rigorous and critical research, it culminates in a designed artifact.
