    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Evan WISKUP: The goal of this project is to experiment how two, frequently assumed antagonistic forms, can coalesce to act as a foil to one another.

    The outer shell is manifested as a solid plinth, taking on a language that is endemic to architecture. The exterior addresses the proposed allée on the East River Waterfront by creating a procession to the building. In doing so, the project takes on the character of a grand civic structure, orienting itself bilaterally symmetrical to the axis of procession. On the inside, a language completely foreign to architecture privileges education and work spaces, acting as a counterpart to the austere, stripped down, classicized monolithic appearance of the plinth-building on the exterior.
