This semester I have been exploring how different planes and surfaces can be modified, added, or omitted to create underlying organizational systems and different spatial qualities. I have done this by shifting floor and roof lines, adding new surfaces or floors, and using structural members such as the “bow truss” to bridge gaps with new surfaces.
