GRADUATE WORK Void to Form Fall 2011 Dogtown, St. Louis, Missouri 25,000 sq m

This proposal is a ceramics studio located in the Cheltenham historical clay mining district. The studio draws from the adjacent educational and manufacturing/industrial programs. Two voided forms represent the two general sets of program. One is focused on the ceramic studio process and the other on exhibition of the historical and contemporary products of this process. The interlocking forms of the building create a reciprocal relationship that captures space and achieves optimum solar exposure. The project is oriented to take advantage of seasonal winds, and draw from existing site lines and contextual scalar references. The resulting structure employs voids on multiple scales and planar directions. In keeping with the program, the physical nature of the voids is simultaneously functional and sculptural, sensitive to natural environment, and built context.
