Projected Sky

This thesis aims to create unique architectural conditions by transforming and deploying the geometry that conceptually represent the sky within the building. “Projected Sky” concept refers to the space constructed by the massing that abstracted from sky elements. It changes the orientation of sky that always above us, instead the sky could exist in the elevation and plan, rather than always in the background. Projecting, folding, extending and mirroring are deployed to the abstract elements from sky, blurring the foreground and background relationship among them.
