Date of Defense 2004-05-15 Availability restricted AbstractStudying movement, through the design and development of a narrow residential site with access from water and land at opposing ends. Utilizing parallel planes, connect three zones of the site and maximizing directional views along its length, while formulating an architectural language of path and passage.
The façade design is a layering of fixed and active colored glass planes to allow dominate parallel wall, to run through the site without the obstruction of frames. Active glass planes rotate along horizontal and vertical axis and connect the interior and exterior living spaces. Glass façade design led to development of a hinging mechanism to provide rotational movement at various opening increments and locking points, while incorporating it into the fixed glazing system.
