Ephemeral architectural qualities such as path, confusion, discovery, and locality are being sterilized through prescriptive wayfinding means and code-driven design. By challenging traditional circulation notions with an intention to get lost, a heterarchy of spaces can begin to replace established hierarchies. This endoscopic design process (in a world turning rapidly to the exoscopic) can saturate architecture with contemplation, emotion, mystery and memory. The lens of a re-evaluated future urban plan of the city allows for a more critical understanding of the status quo. This thesis will introduce a subversive and tactical fragmentation to the urban fabric of Boston, Massachusetts thereby revealing a new urban reality.
