Architecture means to share, to join and to unite. So, to bridge a gap between place and place, I choose a broadcasting center, a joint venture of television and radio station, to be vehicle for my thesis design. The place is a cultural agent as a provoker and circulator of meanings to a wide variety of social groups that constitute its audiences. The building itself is like a living organism which transmits meaning to mankind through its sensory mechanism. The broadcasting facility will include production, administration and sales areas. The structures have to accommodate studios with a large volume, as well as ample dressing, office, storage, and other support spaces. A joint venture is a nowadays trend in broadcasting field as a solution to the economical advantages of shared facilities, equipment and staff. This complex is primarily designed to express the station's corporate culture, to communicate with others through its technology and to contribute media to public. The broadcasting station will be sited in the Downtown Dallas, Texas. Dallas is a successful industrial area in which a building is worthy of its site and response to the program. The facility will operate as an independent station serving Dallas and nearest town. The television and radio station will broadcast primarily various entertainment program such cultural activities, music, local news and drama.
