Title: Unifying the Process, A Personal Journey
Authors: Larson, Stephen
Advisor: Llewellyn, Clark
Issue Date: Dec 2011
Abstract: The unchanging need for harmony in design and construction is best addressed by
the traditional master builder. Unfortunately, the master builder is merely an ideal and
because of the complexity of today’s projects, it is impossible that the archetypal master
builder could be replicated in a single person. However, there are masters in the
profession of architecture practicing today that have the knowledge and leadership skills
necessary to lead a unified team that, as a whole, embody the master builder archetype.
This thesis studies two ‘master architects’ to identify the process of emulating and
pursuing the career of “a master.”The unchanging need for harmony in design and construction is best addressed by
