Back to Your Roots Charrette: Final Four Images + Model
I imagined a circulation space where there were opportunities for students or faculty to gather in small or large groups in a stimulating environment. The large leaf-like structure acts as a canopy (and light source) to create a feeling of being protected. The structure that resembles a jungle-gym is a pavilion where people can meet or a place for impromptu conversations. The wall with the organically shaped voids lets in light and creates interesting shadows. I was trying to create a magical space that will stimulate the imagination and recapture the wonder that young children have when they see and explore things for the first time.
