Illumination in the grave


Therefore, it is my intent to explore the realm of architecture as "art;" as communicating that which is meaningful, that which is affective, and that which is poetic. Thus, the thesis will be an attempt to manifest an architecture of sublime presence, through the qualities of light and shadow that will characterize such a spatial expression as meaningful.

This expression is to be an embodiment of ideas through which a Christian understanding of Death is communicated. Therefore, the architectural design will be a Cenotaph and Necropolis to the Corpus Christi, "the Body of Christ."
