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

Normalcy Disrupted

This project focuses on the act of disrupting the existing state of the Petal House by Eric Owen Moss and the Triple Pitch shed in Los Angeles, which was inspired by the large edition Moss added to the original Petal House, to form a kindergarten. In Project One, I created my reconsidered drawing by changing the shape, size, and material of each instance of twinning so that no two sections of the building were alike. For Project Two, I used pieces of my reconsidered Petal House to “crash” into the idea of a typical classroom. In Project Three, the disruption comes from the unusual shapes of both the classrooms and the main hallway, which forces users to walk a specific path and experience the entire kindergarten.
