Intensive Extensive

How do thermal and climatic variables and conditions shape overall architectural formation? This project uses a hinged dissection to transform one “state” into another. In other words, one set of geometries becomes two distinct projects that can address the thermal and climatic variables of two different sites. This strategy is deployed for a laboratory program and requires hot and cold lab spaces. Through the hinge transformation, site conditions, and the envelope treatment, one state suits a site in Boston, MA while the other suits a site in San Luis Obispo, CA.
