Making Site Interior

My work explores concepts of site specificity and non-site.
Throughout semester one I explored these concepts separately to determine the most successful method of communicating site in a detached context, such as a gallery space. The most successful exercises involved constructing 1:1 pavilions that were functional, site specific, and could be physically relocated to act as communicative tools. A rich contrast was present at the meeting point of the natural environment and introduced forms, with this threshold yielding intriguing details. These pavilions were designed to be occupied by a single person and perform two functions. On site they establish an innate experience and understanding of the land. In the context of the gallery they become dysfunctional objects that evoke questions of form, function and origin.
