1. Yan, Xin. Labyrinth Pavilion.

Degree: M. Arch., Industrial Design, 2017, Virginia Tech

The primitive hut, which is regarded as the initial model of architecture, came from humans' desire to survive and be sheltered from the severe weather outside. Architecture lays its root in practical use but when mankind thrives and begins to flourish, the practical use is no longer the only objective architecture needs to fulfill. My thesis is an exploration of processing architectural design when the practical program becomes the minor factor. The architect's inner pursuit for aesthetic satisfaction becomes the major motive in my thesis. Instead of a project that has an end, I consider my thesis as a continuing research of recording daily inspirations. Inspirations come from memories and could stimulate creations. Different architectural moments that come from my inspirations are pictured in this project in the aim of inspiring other people. I am exploring my own identity as a person who studies architecture. Advisors/Committee Members: Gartner, Howard S (committeechair), Galloway, William U (committee member), Edge, Kay F (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: Perpection; Absence of Program; Memory; Architectural Moments; Inspiration; Conception; Order
