7th MATEO INTERSECT

third year | spring '18

As a museum of architecture, the idea was to embody its place in the urban fabric at an intersection and devise new ways to explore urban spaces around the museum. The site takes places in LA's Art District at the intersection of 7th Street and Mateo, making for a dynamic and culturally growing area.

 

The final design was influenced by these areas of research and represent a clear diagram of dual forms that embody the program within them by its gesture in the site and by its surface materiality. The intersect of a clear programmatic agenda allows for the discovery of unique programmatic adjacencies, all held within a dynamic structural object displaying the shape of architecture to come.
