Exploded Core | Theoretical Site |
ARCH 3020 | Inst. Jose Atienza |
Exploded Core was a two week examination of the movements through a school building and the vertical procession associated with it. Once the movements were studied, a re-imagined stair was designed that made the stair the destination rather than just a means of egress. The stair started out as a simple fire stair and then broke the mundane as the visitor ascended and found programmatic spaces distinguished through variations in floor height.
