dc.description.abstractChange as a physical and psychological process is the connecting thread of the three themes explored in this thesis. First, the AA and AI-Anon programs are used as a framework for an exploration of spirituality or meaning. The programs are about finding a route to positive change in one's life through a sharing of common life experiences among group members. Second, concrete is used as a primary structural and textural material and as the point of departure for an exploration of all other materials. The integration of material and form throughout the design process was a basic premise. Finally, the strong character of the site, on the waterfront, demanded investigation. The everchanging influences on the site generated the built form. This document shows the project as a building process and a design process. The introduction clarifies the thematic origins and intentions. A pictorial essay describes the design process. Design production phases narrate the essay and act as a point of reference for a chronological journal.en_US
