This project is about double agents - the study of partial parts to a unique whole. 201 focused the Mat building and the low courtyard. Through the exploration and hybridization of spatial and structural systems was used to develop a simple art shed at Brooklyn Bridge Park and an extension to the Met Cloister museum, both located in New York City.
Precedent studies of Gatti Wool Factory designed by Pier Luigi Nervi evaluates the innovative structural ribbed floor slab systems. The precedent study helped to develop structural curvatures to extend to my own project.
