Architectural Design

Project Description

This project appropriates the circulation strategy of the Salk Institute to organize the distilled domestic needs of an individual. The circulation ascends around the programmatic space and serves as the active agent of compression and release. This approach organizes minimal space to compress and release the body, where requisite programming is compacted to create open spaces. This project seeks to explore temporality and permanence by rendering the durable material of concrete in varying state of decay or disruption. The object creates for itself an enigmatic origin that lends it an air of mystery.
