Lines

A series of rooms: a task examining boundary and aperture relationships, adjacencies, and organization and composition. But what constitutes a “room”? Here the design is based on a central glass walkway surrounded by sliding slabs that function as both walls and points of entry, challenging traditional methods of transition between predetermined travelling areas and resting areas (“hallways” and “doors”). This lack of formal designation creates an instability, allowing for complex and interrelated spatial configurations.

Exercise in “line” for Michael Meredith’s S’12 introductory studio at the Princeton University School of Architecture.
