Building Debris

This thesis relates architectural practices to intelligent use of resources and the reuse of derelict spaces. Documentation of a rammed earth project enclosing a disused courtyard at MIT is followed by site-specific operations along a three mile stretch of Interstate 93 in Dorchester. A 1994 Ford Escort is used as formwork for temporary constructions with materials found along the highway. The thesis was submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements of Master of Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2006.
