The title of this thesis is "A Case Study in Light Industrial Buildings." After research in this area I am more convinced than ever that such a study is needed. The single building that represents most of today's monuments is no longer solving the problem that arises in a complex society. We as architects are no longer as naive to think that form alone can solve the challenges of the 21st century. A philosopher a few years ago said we were in an era of analysis aid that the next era would be that of suspended judgement. These qualities of analysis and synthesis have been employed by architects for some time but usually by a single person acting alone and acting on a single isolated building. It worked then; it does not work now. No longer can design be limited to one individual's intuition and experience. What is needed is a closer look at the organization or structure inherent in types of buildings and complexes of buildings. This structure in context with goals, constraints, and trends should evolve into an architecture that is not only unique but that solves the problems.
