ARCHITECTURAL TIMEPIECE/

occupiable time-gauging installation

site: charlottesville, virginia

fall 2009

OBJECTIVE: To design an outdoor occupiable installation that somehow tells or gauges an element of time within the small space alloted.

MAIN STRATEGY: THERMAL COLOR-CHANGE TILES AND TRANSLUCENT MARBLE STEPS: a powerful ascending staircase above ground made from vertical elements of black marble and horizontal steps of translucent yellow marble. below ground the inverse reads as a cave with stalactite descending from above and golden light flooding in from the sunlight filtering through the translucent yellow marble.
