This dissertation offers a theory of mapping in architectural discourse. Though heavily lauded for its capacity to incorporate a wide variety of distinct forms of information, mapping has only been addressed in architecture in a few instances with any kind of specificity regarding its supposedly unique capacity to underline both the transition from spatial analysis to architectural construct and how it might possibly assist in the production of architectural construct. By making explicit of the relationship between research and design in architecture through cartographic means, the thesis proposes three distinct ways of clarifying that relationship and simultaneously specifies the architectural result it might generate as well as explicates the underlying thematic
principles at work.
