Description
Silence is a type of behavior. Every person has moments of silence, such as when they are sad or pondering. Their thoughts would be more rational and complete when they are in silence than otherwise. In some situations, silence can give people a better impression. Because the topic is silence, I wanted to compare silence and noise so I placed the building near a highway and a trail. On the other hand, a big empty area near the main road is provided to the people who work nearby. The topography was rebuilt in order to provide different elements we needed such as a small lake and a mountain. Collage creates a relationship between the clouds to determine the shape. I used some pockets, like the oculus, to provide sunlight into the building.
