Exploring the potential of a digital EPS foam cutter to drive the visualization and production of inhabitable space, this project examines the relationship between various construction processes and their ability to program specific modes of spatial experience.
The design for the G.W. Harley Mask Gallery extension was derived from a rotational extrusion of the existing apertures of the Peabody Museum facade. Generating a second skin and programming the internal extrusions which connect the two facades, the gallery enables occupants to inhabit the mask and use it as a gazing device for viewing the external site.
