The fall semester studio was a semester long project composed of three consecutive phases.
In the first phase, we were sent out into the city of Los Angeles to find objects that we normally don't see as architecture or existing structures that were undoubtedly odd or interesting. We were tasked to draw 7 of the things we found and choose one to be our case study for the next phase.
In phase two, we were tasked to analyze, transform, and re-analyze our selected object. After many iterations and refinements, a system was created that would then define the third phase. Three main drawings were produced to demonstrate my ideas and process.
In the final phase, we were tasked with designing a house in the middle of a roundabout in Santa Monica.
I tailored my system in phase two to answer to the program and site. Each facade has a dialogue with an existing, corresponding elevation. The house itself, also creates a new idea of movement through a threshold, or simply a porch, in a normal, domestic building.
