My thesis investigation involves developing a process by which one could derive meaning in the threshold space of an edge condition to which the border is not explicit. In investigating the social and ideological aspects of movement in line with infrastructure, the project aims at reworking our perception of spaces created by transport infrastructure, dealing predominantly with speed, scale, roads and landscape in the play between linear and polar movement. My focus deals with the relationship between the City of Galway and the Town of Oranmore, investigating the changing dynamic of the Irish Town developing a place for lived experience and heritage in future development. The program incorporates a more multi-functional framework, looking at roundabouts, motorway exits and flyovers as nodal points for social interaction between different territories.
