Making a Memory Trace: Slow Time at the Windstar Retreat, Old Snowmass, Colorado
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the question of how architecture can alter the perception of time. The perception of time is critical in defining meaning and relevancy in life. The spaces in which we live, dream, work, explore, and remember can inspire altered moments of perception that enhance the quality of life. This thesis uses the two concepts of slowness and memory to investigate the relationship between time, architectural space and human experience. Presented are two interwoven parts, process and product. The process recorded is a journey from ideas and explorations to program and site, and ultimately design. The design presented in the thesis is the Windstar Retreat in Old Snowmass, Colorado. At this place, one can have different experiences of time, allowing one to consider one’s past, future and place in the world.
