Fourth semester, we completed a study of an art installation, looking at the materiality of the object and how the given material emphasized and enhanced the artists point-of-view. We extended the material study to how a variety of materials, from glass to metals to objects from nature affected the feel of a space and the composition of a building design. The architecture design project itself was an annex to the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, which would include a gallery for the aforementioned art piece.
