Abstract
Imagine the anatomy of architecture as a complex system, where the form is the result of generative processes, the material properties of the components, and their patterns of assembly.
Within this paradigm, surface is that part of the system which exchanges energy, information, and materials with the local environment. How does human occupation of a space offer energy, information, or material to the system-building, and how can the surface best vector these exchanges?
Walking could represent human occupation in this context. I choose my walker’s lineage and declare my interest, as an architect, in empathetic space. I explore the history of bipedalism, of the path as an architectural object, and of the sciences, philosophies and poetries of walkers. And I browse through contemporary architectural discourse pertaining to emergent design methodologies. Along the way, I test my proposal in two experiments: one complete, and one in progress...

A D E C L A R AT I O
I hereby declare that I am the sole author of this thesis. This is (not quite) a truecopy of the thesis, including any required final revisions, as accepted by myexaminers. (I’ve edited the format slightly: letter-size paper is required bythe University. I’m not a fan of letter-sized books. The content is the sameas the thesis accepted by my committee.)
