Architectural Design: CASIS

Author(s)

Project Description

The project proposes a headquarters for CASIS that explores crystalline growth patterns whose aggregations promote a diffuse rather than segregated programmatic organization. The crystal pods themselves collude and collide, allowing for a dispersal of program elements typically thought of as “private” around two cores within the “public” exhibition gallery. Examining the messy relationship between public and private program, this proposal suggests a misreading of programmatic distribution that is reflected in a misreading of form.
