This project was designed as a pavilion for butterflies in the lawn in front of the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. It was a theoretical project designed in my first year of architecture school at USC. The concept for the project was one continuous band of lines wrapping space in a way analogous to a flight of a butterfly. The lines expand and contract, twist and turn, and wrap back around to where they started. This arrayed geometry is also incorporated into the landscaping to define a place of performance and entrance. It also reiterates and extends the geometric language of the project to invite people into the experience. Read Less
