These two walls made me want to hit my head against two walls.
The task was to create 2 walls that would improve the site just outside the Ryerson Architecture building, the Rogers Communication Centre and Pitman Hall (residence).
I wanted to play with the juxtaposition of the straight edges and the curves found in the space, having the intersection of the two becoming a sort of hub area for people to gather and hold small events.
The landscape also changed. I added hills and dug into the earth in order to give more elevations to the more or less flat green surface, giving the viewer a different experience as they walk through.
The curved wall also created a threshold in the rows of trees, inviting more people into the space.
This model was all handmade and so was difficult to use different materials. I used the white millboard to represent my intention for introducing different materials.
That’s what I’ve been up to for the past couple weeks…It’s been a pretty hectic one!
If you have any feedback, I would really appreciate it!
