Inspired by the emotional extremes of the bipolar-depressive character Diana in Next to Normal, the external facade of this restaurant appears eratic and deranged from almost every angle, however, from specific points of view, the eye aligns the floating volumes and planes in perspective to arrive at fleeting glimpses of squares and circles. The composition tests the human sense of sight, considering that which one person sees while others in positions of lesser privelege may not.
The interior spaces of the enclosed volumes further delight the eye while also incorporating each of the other four senses. The resulting architecture is a food service proposal in which the human navigates through a series of rooms, each inspired by the sense of sight, sound, smell, taste, or touch. By means of both architecture and food, the human experiences sensory stimulation to a point of complete elation.

Intersecting two major pedestrian axis, Locust Street and the Schuylkill Banks Trail, provides an opportunity to createa a dynamic hub for both wet and dry recreational activity. This plaza sets the stage for both organized and improvisational theatrics in the daily lives of its visitors.

Folding plate process
Other possible aggregation patterns
Growing exponentially in an infinite, constant, negative curvature, a hyperbolic surface can be produced by increasing the number of a given units by the constant ratio of N to N+1 per row. Using the folded paper plate as the initial module, this project utilizes this hyperbolic logic to invent a lacy, complex surface form.
