architecture studio I: eyes want to caress.

  • Intent/
  • A sense of security is a situation in which human can feel confident and safe. Architecture is a way to achieve this feeling, but no matter how thick the walls one is behind, he could never find a truth sense of security without a sincere faith in a higher power. A place for no religion, and all religions, indwelling the energy of being together: Monumental, Universal,and Timeless.

    The difference between extreme light and extreme dark. The difference between the spacious and the narrow. The difference between awareness and ignorance.

    And that one ray of hope at the point of new, pure start.
  • Objective/
  • Creating a place of gathering and worship for a group sharing a history of pride. A place for them to celebrate, and where their earlier generations are celebrated. A place for them to come back home to.
  • Architectural idea/
  • Employing the Platonic Ideals to create a heavenly form of truth, which one can reach after walking up seven floating horizontal planes.Using the proportions of Solomon’s Temple (ad triangulum and quadratum proportioning) to create timeless architecture that marks time using sunlight.
