Description
The building's structure unifies program and surface by pulling visitors up and through a structural membrane. This complex web performs all necessary functions by fluctuating between truss, column, window and wall. It becomes solid where privacy is needed and deteriorates to let light, sound and circulation pass through. As visitors make their way up to the theater, they are invited to explore the areas of artists and dancers as well. Expanding the capabilities of surface to perform structurally invokes a unique sense of architectural and social interaction.
