    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    stephan SOBL: The epitome of a Hypostyle Hall in my project is a field of massive and fragile columns that define a variation of spatial and volumetric interiors of the terminal. Denser areas of the field create intimate spaces and become areas to rest whereas less dens areas are circulation routes and contain architectural program.

    Large enclosed spaces provided static spatial formations in the form of a performance hall. While progressing through, these programmatic shifts breakdown in scale into dynamic spaces, such as boutiques, restaurants, nightlife, commercial and event spaces, eventually blending into a landscape underneath the Highline Park. In general, these shifts in program occur through subtle changes in surface performance and yet flow as a coherent entity.

    sP: what or who influenced this project?

    rD+cD: Greg Lynn, Peter Testa, Devyn Weiser, Coop Himmelb(l)au

      Excellent. It would be nice to know the relationship between the structure in the poche space versus what is being exposed…

      Just out of curiosity, why go to all the trouble of rendering this beautiful space only to add ugly yellow dancing people? The project looks interesting but I was completely distracted by the people in the main rendering.

      The people are but a small matter. I like that your not treating the space between walls as dark space where “something” happens, however, the deflection of those spiny elements coming down would be intense and maybe even dangerous. Overall good work.
