The thesis is heavily influenced by movies and books which fantasize about the architecture of the future However, all of this seems hypothetical, when every thesis project, every drawing on a paper is, why can’t we allow ourselves to dwell more on imagination, than the reality of everything.

This project might seem fictional but, just like how we see in comics or fictional movies, these
works have a side of reality that brings them into the realm of plausibility.

Going forward, we need to be more considerate towards the future, taking account of how we use
resources, which contrary to what we think, is not infinite, just like the way the earth itself is not infinite. We should make spaces suited to accommodate unpredictability. For example ,in a small village,a person who gives more space for thematic spaces instead of static spaces allows for the
house to be more than what it is — capable of holding infinite spaces — and the owner can build
again and again based on the events. Building this space once, without static rigidity helps it to
survive the future.
The thesis ends with one of the variations of a building that has evolved overtime, where half the
building is occupied by a thematic parasite. The whole point was to decode a built space, keeping
unbuilding it as the starting point. The entires hell of the building is kept while the intervention happens later.
The temporary becomes the new permanent and architecture is no longer a static object. It is a
living organism—ever-changing, ever-adapting, and ever-evolving—regardless of the context
and time. Space itself becomes timeless.
The architecture of the future should be about creating spaces that are nothing yet everything
at the same time.
