Form & Function

Form & Function

Boundaries within an environment do not necessitate the
need for built form. Sensory feelings and imagery are
often under utilized means for generating design. 
Traditionally, a boundary is created by a physical object, 
something tangible that can be felt and seen at one time.
 
The following project however, poses to redefine not only
a boundary but how the program and circulation within a
boundary is defined.  It is through the differences created
in section that an autonomous form emerges which
becomes an urban figure. From the exterior it can be read
as a single object while on the inside new environments
and atmospheres are created from the blending of
pre-determined and non-determined programs.
