The site is located in Santa Monica, California a quarter mile from the Pacific Ocean. The assignment was to house a bus line, two-track light rail, administration space, and public areas. Seeing the city as a series of lines, axis, and grids, I mapped out the major axis within the site, which designated a change of material or topography. Manipulating these lines in the x, y, and z directions produced a layering of shards. Within my concept, shards are represented as triangles, facets, rectilinear shapes or horizontal lines.
