Abstract/Description: Ever since the advent of modern theories in architecture and design, the concept of Rationalism has revolutionized the process of design in the built environment. Rationalism, being the art of logic, has elevated this profession from decoration to design. A number of designers and theorists have tried to approach and achieve this concept by embracing different means and methods. The intent was to encapsulate logic, function and aesthetics in the formulation of a design approach to develop an architectural vocabulary for the built environment. Space and time, being two important aspects, play crucial role in the perception of built environment. Theorists in conjunction with the designers through the ages have tried to understand and use the dynamics of space and time. This thesis addresses the concept of space-time dynamics in the built environment and explores its application as an approach to design. The research explores this concept from a multitude of perspectives ranging from scientific to philosophical views. The end result may not be a completely new definition of architecture and design, but is an expanded view from various perspectives bearing the potential of developing new perception. These approaches can be rationally used towards the spatial solutions to enliven the present urban realm. With these theories as a backdrop, the study explores works and approaches of several contemporary designers and their novel solutions. The thesis culminates with a design project in which these concepts are applied in a real world situation. For the purpose of this thesis, a site was chosen for a mixed-use development project at the Centennial Park in Ybor city, Tampa, Florida. This site provides an opportunity to provide spatial solution for the present day program in this historically and contextually rich setup.
