This was a student project by Faris Ahmed, Colin D'Emilio, Chloe Egbert, Savannah Gabram, Ben Hatwood, Emoree Heiselt, Zachary Polen, Aidan Reinke, Rachel Seifert, Taylor Smith, Stephany Stumphauser, and Simeng Yang (the entire class) for Jane Murphy's courses ARCH 3420 and ARCH 4420 in Spring 2018.
The pattern is a progression from minimal to maximal geometric shapes as one moves up the ramp. Two different patterns in one-foot squares are tiled in a checkerboard throughout. Certain shapes are removed to create the progression until the material is totally perforated. We chose geometric shapes to be read strongly both in shadows that fall and in views through the glass.
Custom-sized chip board screens were laser cut to fit between the mullions. Glazed with multiple layers of cellophane, they are held in place with friction fit wooden frames. The total budget was $1200.
The renderings depict the space from 10AM to 4PM and expand the range of the installation vertically. This allows the shadows and color to reach the concrete piers. The renderings provided material for a chalk drawing on one concrete pier.
