dc.description.abstract This thesis is an attempt to investigate the notion of tempo-spatiality in architecture1 and the architectural discourse. Across many disciplines, from Art to Theoretical Science and Theology, the topic of Time and Space and its complex and multi-dimensional characteristics underpins the very fundamental structure and human perception of reality. The thesis focuses on contributing our understanding of the ontological and epistemological formation of Time-Space by examining the current discourses and various perspectives from selected academic and cultural backgrounds. This thesis is organised into five chapters. Part one presents the overall research scope and general perspective of the investigation. A brief introductory notation for each key sub-topic will be laid out to illustrate key points. Part two, reviews the current discourses on the topic critically reviewed in order to create a platform for discussion. In this part, various relationships and views on Time-Space are highlighted both ontologically and epistemologically. Differences amongst various theoretical sciences and philosophical perspectives on the topic will also be discussed. During this discussion the thesis will develop, self-scrutinise, elaborate and demonstrate ideas through dialectic methodology. This chapter will attempt to strip down the multidisciplinary nature of the architectural discussion. Therefore, exploring key fundamental elements of architectural perception, time and space. Part three takes tempo-spatial interpretations and skills developed from previous chapters into a design practice. Historical significance of the site influences the design and its negotiation with the current status enriches its meaningfulness. Part four is the conclusion. Theoretical interpretations and their physical transformation as design manifestation are critically reflected upon in light of Ontology, Epistemology and other relevant fields of theories. Part five comprises of additional findings and discoveries that were useful and critical to the development of overall formation of this thesis. en
