Synergizing ecological concerns with military programme at the Massachusetts Military Reservation.
Harvard Graduate School of Design - 2012
The Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) project was my first foray into the mind-bending concepts of Landscape Architecture. Such concepts include:
The "Transformer" concept was deliberately designed in contrast to the Cloud concept. Sharp and linear, with delicate trellises and a glazed roof.
Left on the cutting room floor was the "Noodle." It was meant to appear like separate roofs, engaging in a luscious dance. Occasional coming together, occasionally pulling apart. At times, dipping down to greet the public.
Each Noodle was further expressive through its construction. The layers started uniformly, then were occasionally peeled back and reintroduced to create varying senses of weight.
