double negative Architecture 100A Fall 2015 Dominique Price

The language of the solid and void is derived from an interpretation of the spaces found in the stairwells of Wurster Hall.


The spaces found in between flights of stairs are first placed together into a montage.

From the initial arrangement of space, the contours are extracted,

allowing for new interpretations of the original spatial montage.

The montage is then interpreted in three dimensions, which begins to reveal a complex intersection of space from the formal interplay of solid and void.

The visor is meant to improve the safety of cyclists by allowing for hands-free manueverability and proximal awareness while maintaining a consistent view of their path.
