LACMA Addition

UC Berkeley, Fall 2016

In the form of a proposal for an addition to LACMA along Wilshire Blvd., this project combines the representational qualities of the 3d printing technology with techniques of overlaying and projection to provide a potential for the design of architectural form and space. The plans and orientations from surrounding buildings are projected through the site become the basis for programmatic and spatial organization, and the structural framework of the 3d printing technique is translated through representation as a gridded system extending through the site. Through tools of extrusion, cropping and projection, a repetitive schema in plan produces a diverse range of programmatic potential. The project engages the problem of representation and 3d printing as an opportunity for formal design and spatial organization.
