A Cricket Club

Design Critic: Jennifer Bonner

Studio: GSD/Core 1: Project_Fall 2016

The project explores the theme of generic/specific, transforming generic architectural elements into specific fragments that serves the program of a cricket club. The project heavily samples historical precedent of baroque church, transforming through the process of extrusion and abstracting against the organizational systems of the modernist nine-square.

 

The formal operation, then, becomes the exercise of carving out and occupying the poche. The formal irregularity of plan results from the baroque fragment creates faux construction grid, allowing the circulation to flow around the poche.
