"This thesis serves as an investigation into the potential of satire as a tool for creating dialogue and critical discourse within the field of architecture to criticize and comment on illogical situations with an emphasis on irony, exaggeration, and absurdity. Highway interchanges are the prime focus of satire in this thesis due to their current wasted nature and the illogical approach to hyper-rationalize highway design. A formula for reclamation drives the new highway developments with a focus on occupation and densification, ultimately leading to a new highway urbanism."
