Abstract: “Is there valid application in processing architectural design in the method of graphic narrative? This thesis explores utilizing the language of graphic narrative to blur boundaries between apocalypse, mining, and architecture. Set in the abandoned Stobie-Frood mine of Sudbury, Ontario, the narrative in tandem analyzes the past, present, and apocalyptic driven future of the design. By including the three-time sequences in time, the structure transcends all and becomes a character itself in this narrative. The purpose of creating this connection between the method, topics, and design is to create a boundless universal language that can explore larger scale issues such as adaptive reuse, natural energy systems, and subterranean architecture. The graphic narrative in this thesis offers a portal into the architecture world, one that can be understood by architects and non-architects alike.”
