The primary goal of this project is to house the owner’s private art collection in a dynamically changing landscape environment – responding to changes and creating temporal associations between the interior content and the exterior environment. The project is driven by phenomenological and material pursuits at many scales and time spaces simultaneously.
The project was developed using parametric modeling software which enabled Point B to iterate and estimate cost quickly. In addition to the benefit of working through many designs in an evolutionary manner, construction details for general contractors could be generated in sync with the modeling process. Spreadsheets involving the multi-variable geometry then allowed for many of the parts to be digitally fabricated in China, India, and Philadelphia and transported to the location for assembly.
