warped brut

facade study

spring 2021
bldg 54, cambridge, ma

    this study re-imagines i. m. pei’s building 54 through digital and analog media, exploring how a rigid and brutal form can be warped and conceived differently. the goal of this exercise was the decontextualization of a beloved structure and idea, painting the style of brutalism in a new light that respects its history.

    the work focuses on the rhythmic facade of building 54. i attempted to break and incorporate new patterns and styles, through mies style collages, spirograph visualization, and manual scanner manipulation.
