suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
paul CASTELLANOS: Whereas Mies van der Rohe’s Crown Hall, for instance, defined a columns structural integrity by the perception of continuity juxtaposed by discontinuous mullions, this project defines the structural character of the column by its orientation. Vertical elements transition into secondary elements and account for spatial variations, circulation, and lighting. The orientation of the columns subdivide the open plan into smaller spaces and renders enclosure as delusive.
