This thesis is an examination of future growth outside of the towns and suburban developments in Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Its aim is to offer projections for inhabitable physical form. These projections will be responsive to the many specific issues of a given site. Any project contains issues associated with four distinct sizes; namely, Overall Size, Collective Size, Containment Size, and Personal Size. From these issues and their ramifications, this thesis will develop continuities (i.e., of access, sizes, directions, and forms) at each size. The different continuities will reinforce one another in the design of a cohesive place for dwelling. The design projections will be applied to a 30-unit housing development to be built on 12 acres of wooded land, which is located along the western perimeter of Sellersville, Pennsylvania.
