institution: harvard graduate school of design
instructor: beth whittaker
time: 2nd semester core / spring 2014
project: rare book library / community gathering / bridge
location: boston, massachusetts
Following the analytique / redux exercise, the new assignment was to design our own rare book library in the same site in which we situated our redux. The site was along the Fenway in Boston, a marsh-like park adjacent to the Museum of Fine Arts. The concept of my redux was to creating a much needed pedestrian bridge to connect two sides of the park previously divorced from one another. The resulting form took shape as both a bridge and a wall.
