We are working backwards: in the place of “beginning” thesis projects with architecture the group will begin with examining the Terms* and Conditions** in which architecture is produced. In particular, these projects demonstrate the value of architectural design in broader contexts as well the impact of such contexts on the discipline itself. We think big: we conceive of provocations that link architecture to its constituents in a manner that imagines positive change for both. Thinking big does not necessitate operating at a large scale. These projects range from fine operations on existing artifacts to conceptions of new forms and environments. 

*Terms refers to events, histories, knowledge, mediums, phrases, rules, skills, systems, processes, techniques, and words used to define a territory commonly referred to as the discipline of architecture. 

**Conditions refers to the state of the world today with regard to its appearance, quality, and/or working order, and the circumstances affecting the way in which we live and/or work, especially with regard to safety or well-being.
