After the midterm review, the structure I had in mind changed significantly to be more coherent in terms of where program is located and what the space intends for patrons to do both above and below. I wanted to maintain the core spatial relationships I established throughout the semester, but I had to “reel in” the form enough that it could be understood easier.

starting from bottom to above:
context: section through playground and sidewalk, front entrance, Auburn Assessment center in the background
context: a cut through the site and library, ingersoll housing complex in background

Diagram of the panel-to-pod fiber optic system
The panels that reach above the surface bring natural light into the pods and underground space by using fiber optics.
the 1:20 and 1/8″ models were meant to act as supplements to one another
Photos of the 1:20 model were taken at angles associated with the site

view at the entrance of playground access slope into potluck space. note: areas that are open are not enclosed because of the spatial quality created by the “parted wood” system on the roof of the structure. This allows for light to pass through the side facing south, which flows into the public potluck space.

This model highlights the spatial quality of the area below the roof, where a large portion of the program takes place:
