i dont think you will be able to define it in time for your thesis. If ever.

Le Corb has a nice definition,

"Architecture is, when construction is beautiful.'

Very simple. Yet he too fails to take on board architectures complexities, and his simplicity of response, inadequate deals with those complexities.

Architecture to me, should come under "exploration' in that dictionary od yours..

good luck, you are going to need it.
