ALTERNATE FORMS OF SPATIAL EXPERIENCE

FACULTY PROJECT AWARD 

In recognition of a fifth-year degree project that represents an outstanding resolution of a creative architectural premise.

PROJECT BRIEF: 

Architecture has traditionally been understood as a discipline highly tied to physical reality. This thesis questions the idea of spatial permanence as the basis of design and as its only outcome.

"In Passing" is an installation that aims to create an experiment in architecture's capacity to produce alternate forms of spatial experiences and construction - through the use of light as space-making material. By creating visual spaces with light's un-touchable essence, it encourages viewers to see in ways that are haptic - as if we can feel the light with our eyes. The qualities and sensations of the intangible are made tactile.
