Carving for Space and Texturing

The next step was to begin carving into the packed geometry as a way to create interior space that can be occupied. There are five chunks that are oriented onto the site. Each chunk has its insides ripped out so that floor plates may be placed inside. Secondary and tertiary geometry is created to mitigate between and provide structure for the chunks which appear to float in the space. There are two moments of occupation within the space. The first is inside a carved chunk, where most of the program resides. The second is outside of the chunks but still inside the spcae, which is primarily used for circulation along with other, smaller portions of program. This separation allows the inhabitant to both experience the chunks as a space but still be able to view them as things within a space.
