This assignment began with a series of arrays, and then space was defined with planes and enclosed volumes. Tectonics were applied to the design concept, and evolutions were made each day with new possibilities. 
The main idea behind this project was to provide different viewer experiences while moving from the bottom to the top of the space. The incorporation of a defined site into the project further enhanced the experience, with circulation helping form links between a city street and an active alley. 
Sections, plans, diagrams, perspectives, and study models have been created to highlight these ideas. A combination of hand-drawn and digital drawings gives the visual experience of being in the space.
