Architecture as infill; or the method by which the patterns of context are synthesized in the process of intervention, stands as the base of this thesis. The work uses and defines the marketplace as a building type generated through the choreography of passages and rhythmic patterns inherent in the site and inclusive to the performance of human events. The thesis can be understood as a personal journal of observations; the collection of thought and documentation on the choreography of public formating in the marketplace. Finally, the work attempts to synthesize the themes of passage, pattern and performance in the design of an adaptive reuse marketplace within the Watertown Arsenal.
