My project is based around emphasizing the relationship and contrast between curves and harsh geometry throughout the site landscaping and my structures. I’m using this consistently through my project in order to make a continuous connection between the buildings and their surroundings for the experience of the people inhabiting the space but also to create a connection between plan and section. I want the methods of physical connection and pathways between them to merge details that are found in each of the structures.
