My design focuses on using columns which get thicker and taller eventually forming walls in order to create different levels of privacy throughout the structure. This allows for a seamless flow from least to most private space. For me, privacy is always important, but sometimes I do not want to be in a completely secluded space, so that is why I wanted various levels of privacy in my design. Also, interaction with nature is important to me, so even if I cannot actually be in a forest, I can design a space that feels like a forest, and that is what I did with the columns. My design is an introverted space created by a forest of columns allowing me different levels of privacy and a smooth transition between spaces.
