tom WISCOMBE: the morphology of the project is based on patterns of armatures and pleats which form an intricate ornamental network. armatures are woven together to create the circulation and structure of the concourse, forming deep spaces and views from the plaza into the building as well as from the building down into the plaza and out into the city. micro-pleats track along the armatures but also spread out along surfaces, spatially drawing visitors inside the plaza. the sensations produced by this fluid geometry are heightened by a gradient of color which is most intense on the interior but fades out to the exterior of the building. formal and color intensities are at their peak in the concourse, and begin to atrophe toward the theater blocks at the perimeter of the site. in this way this project attempts to bridge classifications of generic and articulated form as well as monochromatic and variegated color.
