This book is all about becoming and being an architect. It could be said that it is both a period at the end of a long and fruitful educational experience and page one of what hopes to be a promising career in the field of architecture. It can also be looked upon as the final leg of a long journey that is about to come to a close. Now that I have come to the end, I reflect on the many long hours and find that it is difficult to imagine seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Past projects and deadlines are only a memory, and past studios and lecture classes were only the precursor to the final studio - Thesis. The light can be seen but is still clouded by the ups and downs of the real experience. This book purposefully focuses on the issues encountered when a building is to be commissioned and built. Those issues are the key factors to the success or failure of any design. It could be said that this program is perhaps a checklist of data that must be understood thoroughly in order to successfully be able to design in any particular region or setting. This book is a breakdown of the important issues that are involved in my thesis project. The intent of this book is to formulate a thesis topic and to support it with appropriate data that relates to a specified site and context.
