Structural Distortion

Gallery and Restaurant Space

Professor: Marcelo Spina

The structural disruption project is designed as an addition to the LA Mart, located in downtown Los Angeles. The addition incorporates the idea of the autonomous icon. The project approaches what could be a reserved or withdrawn icon. The addition is designed as a field that distorts and unifies the existing building. This project was an exercise in design and composition focusing on the importance of the form over the program.
