    Thesis Abstract

    Due to the growth of the population and the expanding of the cities in the United States, decommissioned scientific experimental sites are now often located on the the only lands available in metropolitan areas. Those scarred grounds raise a series of challenging questions regarding architecture and public spaces. This creates an opportunities to examine architecture as vehicle to reinforce positive advancement by facilitating public participation.

    This thesis is to re-imagine the vast size of decommissioned experimental sites through creating continuous landform structure between ground and enclosure. The structure unifies and reveals the existing condition of the site. It also provides opportunities to construct new programs and raises public interactions with otherwise be neglected sites.

    Through the techniques of ground subtraction observed from these sites such as excavation and controlled erosion, this thesis tries to capture the artifact effect as well as the characters of the experimental sites. it develops the tactic that is suitable for the experimental sites and transforms them into accessible and usable spaces.

    I am working on the Fermilab, a partial decommissioned experimental site that hosts large circular collider for particle physics experimentation, outside of Chicago. There are layers of equipments embedded deep in the ground now sits abandoned and can be revealed. They could provide general public the deeper understanding of experimentation..
