VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday starting at noon on Wednesday, November 21, through Friday, November 23, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thanks for your patience, and happy holidays!
What is the opportunity afforded by a distinction in geography? Can a building respond to a threshold, or meeting point between two distinct geographical conditions? In particular, the duality of land and water and the moment when these two elements meet, could indicate and influence form and structure. What is a potential response to such a condition in geography, what are the mechanisms and means by which a building could respond to such a condition? This project seeks to highlight and celebrate the distinction between land and water, a meeting point where land ends and a river begins. The buildingâ s form, structure, and material are a reaction to the geographic condition.
