This work seeks a sense of confrontation through constructing walls against the mountain landscape. The thesis document demonstrates this confrontation through four schemes: a bridging wall with courtyards and tower (70 ft in height), a concrete wall (80 ft in height), a fabric wall (80 ft in height), a steel skeleton wall (120 ft in height), and a solid wall with steel plates (24 ft in height). The surfaces color in all schemes is similar, but material means change with each scheme. All walls are designed to be built on the mountain lake of San Bernardino Pass in Switzerland.
The document contains pencil and charcoal drawings, sketches, soft pastels drawings, digital projections, and model photographs.
