Course: Arch 202B
In this project, I revisited the shed and considered how its spatial neutrality and industrial grade materials become the container in which program is situated through addition and subtraction, or other means in order to produce program for a roughly 12,000 sf kindergarten. Ongoing material investigations and interventions became technique for programming space. Program, as it relates to the common adage of figure vs field, will correspond with material notions both at the scale of smaller, individual spaces or rooms, as well as the scale of the larger, generic sized shed. The kindergarten will be seen as a space that primarily must engender play, as it has been considered as a particular attitude toward material that can be traced throughout the semester, and throughout work by L.A. School architects.
