When and how is an architectural idea resolved? Ultimately, it emerges from a decision, or determination, that a body of production fully captures, or completes, a concept. But resolution can be difficult to identify and achieve in relation to an endeavor like design thesis, which represents the first step in a life-long process of design-related inquiry. We’ll discuss the various states of resolution that may exist in relationship to an architectural proposition, and the multiple ways in which notions of resolution in architecture can be defined and understood.
