Studio: SCI_arc 2A Studio

Instructor: Zachary Tate Porter

Location: Palm Springs, California

Program: Educational Institute

Project Date: December 2015

The slab typology uses the corridor as its main parti.  The corridor helps to provide circulation, separation, program, direction, and in many cases form.  This projects looks to the corridor as a delineator, not an attractor.  It thus takes on the form of a curve.  It snakes around the slab, indifferent to its boundaries.  It is also what serves as the occupiable wall for the project.  Rooms are separated not by a simple wall, but with a space wide enough for circulation.
