For most of her youth Margaret, now eighteen or nineteen, has been brought up in London by her wealthy Aunt Shaw; she has rejoined her parents only after the marriage of her vivacious but shallow cousin Edith to Captain Lennox. The captain's brother, Henry, a rising barrister, had asked for Margaret's hand but, regarding him as just a friend, she declined his offer. Settling in smoky Milton, the Hale women are troubled by urban dirt and commercial go-getting. Mr. Hale now works as a tutor. His favourite pupil is the important manufacturer, Mr. Thornton. Staying to tea, Thornton debates with the naive, "humanistic" Hales about the condition of the working class, strikes, and the other mill owners.< Less

BLURring: mediating in a rural-urban landscape By Lick Fai Eric Ho

Design can no longer survive as an isolated autonomous entity, nor can it be an infinitely connected rhizome with no limits. Rather, its autonomy emerges from the alignment with its contingencies.... More > The thesis is a fusion of a re-interpretation of the larger cultural + economic issues with projective design trajectories. Design should not presume or hypothesize programs and conditions, rather the design of particular programs and situations is stemmed from the analysis of the threats and problems of a place and people, in this particular case, in South Tenerife, Spain. The project is an attempt to utilize architecture as a mediator and generator among other influences and contingencies in a much accelerated condition. Built forms and design scenarios emerge from a deeply connected condition involving multiple layers, and constantly re-negotiate and re-speculate on the trajectory of development. It asks why engages in design and architecture, and suggests where it can refit.< Less
