Project four investigates depth through formal and material studies. This project is a translation of a models studying transparency and depth. In the final material model, the roof cladding incorporates a dual material condition found in my study model. When viewed directly the roof and pool triangulation appears reflective, but when it is viewed from an angle, it is transparent. The pool surface duality deconstructs the preconceived relationship between an observer and the space that is perceived behind the surface. The other model studied depth through the relationship between a circle that transformed into an ellipse and then a line. The negative space in this model was made of jello and the positive space was made of plaster; these were then translated into a positive space made of glass walls and the negative space made of the water that would fill in the pool form. In the drawings, depth is conveyed through geometric gradient and panelized gradients. Within the glass walls of the pool pavilion, the analogy of a fruit bowl on an egg crate with fruit spilled down into the egg crate was used for as a conceptual driver for programmatic organization. The plan cut and section cut drawings detail the spatial choreography of the pool pavilion. Read Less
