Purpose

The concept of this project was to explore and learn how to analyze building uses and takes in light. As light enters a building, it can be manipulated and controlled using different techniques like backlighting, reflector shields, and light cannons. Using curved surfaces in a structure allows for exquisite light displays and fascinating displays and patterns of light to be created. The building we designed was a non-denominational chapel, which uses creative lighting systems that depicts a serene and meditative place.

Final Model on site

My site selection of site location was decided by situated public space using formal vs. informal. The front of the building is placed in a traditional area. Also, I liked how the building faces north so that the sun rises in the east and is set in the west. This will give natural light. It connects to the rest of the formal circle close to the significant circulation path, connecting important student life buildings. Back of building allow easy access to parking. The building is also placed away from other facilities to enable full sunlight throughout the day.
