ARCH 202B: Architectural Design II Gallery: The Materiality of Schools, Sites, and Sheds


The language of the cruciform is manipulated and transformed to create distinctions between programs and to demarcate space and establish circulation within the kindergarten. The cruciform, which is derived from project two utilizes the vertical and horizontal structural members to create permeable boundaries where light, sound and air may pass through. The interpretation of the cruciform is less catholic where lines, L shapes and T shapes account for the distinction of space as much as the true cruciform allows.
