fundamentals I : water works
Water Works was a Fundamentals of Architecture project exploring the relationship of time and space concurrently. This was the first project which had an assigned set program and an introduction to a structured set of parameters to be filled. The site was entirely fictitious and the only program revolved three water reservoirs and a path of circulation. The objective was to create a path that would engage and interact with the three water reservoirs in three distinct manners, making each experience unfold upon itself as the visitor progressed through the project. Each water reservoir had different volumetric capacities therefore the experience between water, site, and observer would speak a different language. The first water reservoir, also the largest, cantilevers at the apex of the site where the visitor begins their journey. The communication between the primary reservoir and the secondary stimulated the sense of sight and audibility. As the observer would progress through the project, they would directly engage with the water in a manner that compiled their senses by means of circulation. Thus, the relationship between the secondary reservoir and the tertiary reservoir - a pool - finally lead the visitor to come in physical contact with the water conclusively and the sense of touch was finally introduced.
