For this project, I wanted to design a shelter that was less site-specific and bulky, and more modular and airy. Separating each post allows for pedestrian traffic on a busy street corner to go undisturbed. Instead of just being something that you walk around, this shelter is something that you can walk through and experience. The steps allow for maximum amounts of seating while taking up as little space as possible, while the thick vines simultaneously bring a bit of nature back into the city and provide shelter.
My design for this performance space was based around controlled circulation. Panels are used throughout the space to direct your eye towards the main space. For example, when one looks at them from the sidewalk, they appear to be a solid mass directing your eye towards the performance area; while looking at them from inside the park, they appear very thin and reveal private spaces within the site. This idea is used throughout the park, and is especially useful around the stage as these panels block everything off behind the performer, though looking at the stage from the street is not a problem, as they hardly appear to be there.

For my urban sanctuary, I wanted to emphasize the journey to the sanctuary itself through the use of a ramp system. The journey up represents life while the sanctuary represents Heaven. â€œSlotsâ€? were cut out around the exterior of the ramp and have different jobs: the skinniest are there to solely allow light in while the biggest ones frame a certain part of your surroundings that I want you to pause and look at.
