Abstract
How can a building and the landscape be integrated in such a way that the interior and exterior begin to infiltrate each other, blurring and in some cases breaking the threshold between them?

A threshold is a place, time, or event that indicates the passage from one state to another. Instead of a simple dividing line, thresholds should be understood as a choreographed sequence of spaces, both inside and outside the building envelope.

This project will explore the means to strategically break thresholds between different conditions to create a building intimately bound to the physical, social, and mental landscape it inhabits.
