Can light and the absence of it, as well as directionality of planes create distinct spaces?
Moving through the project is akin to going through a maze and discovering unexpected and/or unknown spaces. The formal language of folding planes and peeling away layers generates apertures for light and movement. The ground plane transforms to become the roof and then the wall. Modulation of this system creates some narrow and bright spaces, and some wide and dark spaces. The dark spaces begin from ground level and lead into the bright spaces close to the subway. Only through the latter spaces can you proceed to the subway platforms. It has a minimal shape above-ground that hints at what is to come, and a complex shape below ground.
