This thesis explores a new technique for design through perspective which produces a phenomenon that reorders our perception of the familiar effects of lightness, heaviness, flatness, and depth within the same framework. The methodology allows representation to become a design tool through which one’s understanding gets incessantly updated, escaping from a static framework of conventional construction techniques. Located in a dense urban environment of Chicago, where the synthesis between technical inventions and aesthetics has been exhibited in the modern history of architecture, the thesis demonstrates the technique and representation of its resulting effects with an office tower to challenge its typified organization and composition under functional constraints.
