GUIDING LIGHT THEATER ARCH 482| 2012 | WHELTON THIS STUDIO PROJECT WAS DRIVEN BY CONCEPTUAL MODELS DERIVED FROM A LOCAL RECLAIMING CENTER. WE THEN INTERPRETED THESE ARTIFACTS INTO ARCHITECTURE THAT REPRESENTED FILM. THE PROGRAM ENTAILED A BREWERY AND THEATER IN A NARROW LOT IN A BUSY NEIGHBORHOOD. THE FINAL DESIGN CAME FROM AN INTERPRETATION OF BENDING DOOR HINGES THAT WERE HELD IN PLACE BY NAILS. THE TENSION & PROTRUSION RESEMBLE LIGHT PENETRATING FILM IN ORDER TO PROJECT A MOVIE.

Concept Models The models focused on exploring the tension between the bendind hinges and the protrusion of the bolt. Held in place the planes ‘guide’ movement, light and sounds.
