Date 2011-04-18 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe subject for this dissertation is a development for the Tswaing Crater nature reserve that is dedicated to the rediscovery of the significance of place, as well as a rediscovery of the significance of self. These discoveries are made through the medium of storytelling, which is a universally understandable activity. Different theories on the perception of architecture, existential presence in the world and methods of storytelling is explored to inform a design question. The study culminates in the proposal for a built intervention that responds to the cultural and bio-physical environment and addresses problems identified during the theoretical discourse.
