Material Process Product

The Module and Structural Form

Here is some process for you. Now that the Arts Plaza is complete, there is a desire to create an opening into the adjacent Williams Visual Arts Building to access the plaza. We thought the opening needed more of an experience and would resemble a tear in the layer of brick. More importantly, the opening would happen without any conventional structural support. We intend to rely on the careful craft of stacking brick to make the opening and provide the sculpted and structural form. We look to the master of sculpted structural form Eladio Dieste and his church in Atlantida Uruguay. Looking forward to meeting with the masons to start the collaborative process!
