Inspired by Louis Kahn’s Mother’s house, I created square shaped programs for project three. Each program occupies a single individualized space with a different rotation. The shed is formed by eleven main blocks which are related one another to produce spaces of different shapes and sizes. I created a set of cuboidal modules with hollow interior. The composition and layout of various sizes of wood modules creates different experiences for the students, such as stairs, bookshelf, chairs and climbing wall.
