This thesis choreographs an anticipatory narrative through an awareness of the ‘enormous condition,’ pervading our disciplines. The charge: connecting seemingly disparate trans-geographic forces that implicate territories, architectures, and objects to incite design. A fleet of mercenaries, a commercial enterprise, and a range of new cultural institutions are submitted as proto-architectures of this pseudo-fiction. The proposed spatial product, mobilize various constituents and invoke a paradigm shift by exploiting the endemic status of an ecological disaster and indulging in the ambiguous tensions between capitalist and conservationist agendas.
