Tenuous Connection, 2016. Hand cut bass wood, metal, plastic sheathing, dimensions variable
My project proposes a theater space in downtown San Francisco with a mission to preserve the city’s cinematic history and culture, engage the public with a focus on community, and exist within the tangible space of architecture. Its form is focused on expanding the social use of public spaces and was developed through the research of constructivist architecture and the exploration of axonometric geometries. Tenuous Connection focuses on site-specific theater and the physical relationship one has within physical space. The exploration of site-specific theater led to an examination of the public realm, specifically parks and plazas. In an evaluation of civic use, the theater became a way to revive existing public spaces in San Francisco. The theater space became a vertical extension of the plaza environment.
