The House as a Screen: A Transition Between Two Landscapes
Simpson, Nicholas Anthony
MetadataShow full item record
When I walk over Hatteras Island, I experience three things: the sand beneath my feet, the Ocean toward the East, and the Sound toward the West. Each has different qualities yet all three can be experienced simultaneously. It is my intention not to obstruct this connection, but rather to accentuate it. I will design a dwelling that will tie the sand, the Ocean, and the Sound together. It will be a reflection of the qualities of each of these natural elements. The dwelling will take on the characteristics of a screen, with many different levels of permeability, while providing the necessary amount of livable space.
