ARCH 505A: Graduate Architecture Design I Gallery: Rudiments

Helix Gallery

My project focuses on the visitor’s experience as they journey up the helical staircase that leads them from the gallery up to the observation deck on the top level. As visitors make their journey up the staircase, they are able to get glimpses of the various program components on each level. The form is composed of staggered circular shapes within a rectangular box that plays with the idea of geometrical solids and voids.
