Of the thesis entitled: Hants County, 45º6’10”N 63º44’2”W
A site in Hants County, Nova Scotia is the location for an off-grid farm. Instead of an architecture that circumvents locality, with local building culture, design is a process of regional discovery. Using photography to document the regional architecture, the design develops a context for an architectural project. Through the experiences gathered on site and throughout the area, architectural ideals that are regionally conscientious manifest themselves. By engaging a local building culture, the dialogue between landscape and structure becomes continuous, never meant to stagnate or become static.
