Architecture as a reaction to place. As current design and construction practices increasingly move toward the rapid production of "carbon copy" structures and homes, it is important that we begin raising question to the resulting loss of character and sense of place. The pertaining Thesis will explore ideas of structuring space through a cumulative and authentic response to place as a way of restoring the individual character each place potentially holds. At the small scale of a quaint mountain community, one faced with the growing pains of resort suburbia, this thesis will explore methods of evaluating place to structure an authentic response that speaks of the community and enhances the land it occupies, a response that "fits."
