This is a project exploring how the imagination works in the process of dreaming and drawing architecture. The infinite and extraordinary possibilities of the imagination are contrasted with the banal, ordinary programme of a takeaway Fish and Chip Shop, located in a common site in Torpoint, Cornwall, England.
The process of projecting architecture takes place within the limitless mental and perceptual landscape of the imagination. This can manifest itself in many forms one of which is the act of dreaming, with the eyes either open or closed. This thesis specifically investigates the act of dreaming with the eyes open, which we call daydreaming. The way in which we daydream is similar in structure and theory to the mental processes underway when we enter our architectural imagination through the act of drawing. This project explores how we enter and occupy our architectural imagination to conceive and dream of future buildings through the act of daydreaming and drawing.
The investigation is structured around both the making of the project (the drawing of the building), and the project of the making (the building of the drawing). The act of drawing is not used to represent ideas of architecture, instead the architecture has emerged from the imagined ideas and dreams of the drawings. Just as one can not separate where the thinking stops and the drawing starts, the programme and the process have not been divided or given a hierarchy. Instead, just like a portion of fish and chips wrapped in paper and carried in a plastic bag the two elements are inseparable and both are reliant on the other. The Fish and Chip Shop by the water emerges by dreaming of the drawing and by drawing the dream, both the project of drawing and the drawing of the project are of equal importance.
