suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Margaret SHAY: My work on the topic “interior envelopes” set forth by our professor began with the study of the plan of Christopher Wren’s unbuilt version of Saint Paul’s cathedral. Through my studies, I extracted the pure geometries that were driving the plan and began calling out the new geometries that resulted due to overlapping, and also exploring those new geometries in three dimensions.
