dc.description.abstractThis collection of drawings and paintings presents a proposal for a ballroom dance center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The building is unnecessarily generous with the most essential elements and exaggerates non-essential elements in a way enhances their redundancy. Layered glulam ceilings cover the two main spaces and evoke the hidden structure of the sprung dance floor below. The ceiling is reflected in the pattern of the hardwood floors, and the ballroom is reflected in the pool outside its layered facade. Layers of concrete walls create thresholds and add depth to the views between spaces. Light, material, and people follow indirect paths through the building and its detailed elements.en_US
