Host Building

In investigating the opportunities embedded in the often underutilized vertical facade surface and exploring its potential as an engine for urban regeneration, this design developed a surface installation for a very long horizontal facade of a vacant pawn shop consisting of imageembedded, LED-lit fins attached along the facade of the building. When viewed obliquely, the fins reveal a prairie landscape that provides a stark counterpoint to this urban, autocentric environment. The fins crescendo toward the intersection and spatially jump across the street, creating continuity between this building and the adjacent sidewalk.
