This is an investigation into the possibility of establishing a meaningful monumental architecture within contemporary society. The thesis explores the relationship of the visible and invisible qualities of monumental architecture, to create a lasting architecture for our time. This is explored through the relationship of monument to earth, monument to man, monument to itself and monument to beyond-man. The project through which these relationships are explored IS a weather data collection center located on the abandoned TVA Phipps Bend Nuclear Power Plant site in Hawkins County, Tennessee.
