In this project, I explored inhabitable spatial relationships between three major moments: entry, transition, and arrival. These moments were discovered through previous investigations of architectural techniques such as stereotomic and tectonic building. By investigating spatial sequences and how they are related, the term “threshold” became apparent. By using detailed and intentful thresholds, this project gained a cohesive experience for the viewer.
Main drivers behind this spatial vignette were sight lines, repetition, and compression and release. Sight lines are represented through voided space and material changes. Repetition is represented through aesthetic features such as the overhead condition, as well as orientation in each moment. Compression and release is represented throughout the experience within each moment as well.
