Architectural Design: Under Pressure

Project Description

This project for two inhabitable spaces starts with a simple geometric gesture that cuts the site in half diagonally in order to generate two inextricably linked volumes. The interplay between the initial geometry of the site and the new geometry triggered by the diagonal is utilized to instill an “affect of repetition”.  As a result, a new rhythm between void and plain is created that reinforces the ambiguous definition of interior and exterior spaces.
