This project is a reference to how architecture and scale can imply strength, convey power or inspire awe. Throughout history this strategy has been used for seats of government, memorials, places of worship and industry headquarters. These structures have been built to an immense size and in many cases are elevated or separated from their surroundings to create further distinction.
Monumental buildings often come with identifying characteristics, however the goal of this project is to imbue a sensibility rather than provide examples of individual use. For me that is achieved through the transformation of ordinary buildings by composition and light. By elevating the everyday, the focus becomes the psychological qualities that influence perception.
