Moving beyond program, form, or site, this project aims toward the sole expression of making. The design is driven by its construction and the association of its components. Using the tectonic character of a “finger”, the project began by determining the hierarchy of organization of its construction.
The components of the model were organized in terms of its structural organized in terms of its structural priority. (1) the inner structure is identified by the metal framework. (2) the roof and floor system is shape directly into the primary structure. (3) the stone panels are hinged and hung into the primary structure and roof system. (4) to address weather condition (wind & rain), screen were added to the to the stone system. These provide protection from the outside without restricting visual access from the interior. (5) Finally, wood panels were added to provide for sitting in the exterior.
