The document which follows represents an exploration of distance and its connection to architecture. This exploration is threefold. On one level it regards distance as an ontological question, researching for precedent work on the subject such as the ancient Greek way of building or, the sociological research of Edward Hall. On another level it undergoes a design process in order to investigate distance vis a vis architectural design in terms of dimensions, architectonic elements and perception. Lastly, it concerns the semantics of distance, particularly from the philosophical point of view of Jean-Paul Sartre.
