"This thesis aims to explore how architecture can improve from its inherent disorders. Current architectural design thinking dictates that buildings be composed at one point in time. After constructed, buildings degrade, meaning that they need to be maintained in order to retain their intent. However, what if we, as designers and architects, use weathering, erosion and degredation as design tools. The design lens then becomes one that realisticlly includes time and the processes that happen over time, finds new meaning in the built environment and allows buildings to be antifragile."
