Although it may appear that this thesis represents a narrowly defined project with respect to the building, the type of resident and the time in which it is occupied, in reality, its associations go in two directions. The thesis reaches back to historical and intellectual precedents, while at the same time lays a fertile ground for related work in the future. The following documents establish the goals and organization of the thesis and in doing so, become the introduction.
