From your question I understand, what you mean by "photogenic Architecture" is architecture or basically a building that looks your jurors are asking you to change the topic is because your project is all about "facade treatment" and facade treatment by itself is not architecture.
Architecture is also about how a spaces feel and not just how spaces look and that's why you can't do a thesis on such a project, because facade treatment is being done everywhere in the world, on old and new buildings alike without focusing on how the space inside is habitable, and that is where architecture's role comes in.
