Meeting House: Prospect + Refuge
Gabe Colombo

#architecture #diagram #plan #section #render
The individual design work seen here was left unfinished after the studio collectively decided to pursue a group design and research project. This meeting house is composed of spaces that offer simultaneous prospect and refuge, paying close attention to the architectural qualities that provide humans with both comfort and connection: intimate space, soft yet legible thresholds, half-walls, and polyrhythmic apertures.

This set of images includes rejected diagrams from the GSD Core I Hidden Room project. These early diagrams were interested in describing circulatory ramps that moved along the perimeter of shifting pills to confuse the occupant of the order of rooms and slip in a "hidden room." These diagrams were abandoned for a more organized and systematic solution but the "final" project lost the exciting formal implications of the early diagrams.
