Rhythm of Lines

More often than not, lines are used to represent a space. They become the consequence. What would happen if they become the driver? This project incorporates an antecedent line drawing to generate the architecture.

Intimate communal spaces are established by assigning groups of similar lines to different sources of occupation. Not only do the lines define the space but they define the material. Sequential linear elements are translated into grout lines, corrugation, curtains, and structure. The overlaps created by these spaces produce a hierarchy between the spaces. Rather than enclosing the entire space, the constructed lines create different passageways, layers, and spaces of interaction.  

Once spatialized as architecture, the project generates even more lines in the shadows.
