I was interested in exploring how free-flowing edges and orthogonal edges converse with each other to create spatial qualities that can be experienced differently by occupants. A skate park is a place for both social interaction and skateboarding. The free-slowing shapes in my project allow for my clients and guests to move around freely, while the orthogonal edges act as boundaries that separate recreational and lounging areas.
