Architectural Design: Under Pressure

Project Description

The inherent geometry of the 'site', which is twice as long as it is wide, was used as a starting point, with triangulated folds made along the sides to the midpoints of their diagonals. These folds create both an exterior slope and an interior space, where in each space the occupant is made aware of the other through a system of perforations. These perforations condition the entry of light and sound from interior to exterior and vice versa, and subtle changes in scale of the apertures accommodate a range of activity.
