Gallery: Rudiments

Instructor: Emily Mohr

This project is based on the idea of the Orient the plans with north at 10:30 and the human movement of the surrounding environment to design a gallery with sloping angled floor plans. This kind of angle applied both in floor plans and skylights aim to maximize the natural light into space, and the interaction between interior and outside spaces. The interior spaces with angled elements emphasis different experience through spaces with different functions. The three levels of the project connected with two long staircases lead people to go through from more public spaces to more private spaces.
