Riva San Vitale, Switzerland
I learned to go beyond the prescribed and listen to what a place needs. I learned the language and spoke with locals. I documented site conditions. The project is a study of a unit as a microcosm of the whole. The unit is repeated, establishing a grid, and the grid establishes an order. The project was to design a performance space in addition to practice spaces whether formal or informal or whether combined within the performance space.
I saw an opportunity beyond what was prescribed based on community needs. The result of my proposal is a series of buildings that read as parts of a set, each addressing a different need, but allowing flexibility for future repurpose.
