A Wall In A Box
A Two-Week Project
At the beginning of the Fall 2020 semester, fifth year architecture students in Associate Professor Il Kim’s design studio were asked to select a type of human activity or movement for investigation. Possible activities could include contemplation, meditation, reflection on objects or ideas, or observations on movement and activities—such as performance, procession, or other cultural rituals involving different types of movement.
Students were asked to design an experience in which the participant would be guided through a space by the insertion of different constructions that either referenced or recreated the selected activity. The goal of the assignment was to study ways that the design of physical space can affect or comment on human activity and movement, and to understand that form can choreograph movement.
