For a final project, we were asked to design an interactive space at the Walker Art Center site. My experiential landscape consisted of five curving corten steel walls sunk into the hill at various angles to create a variety of shady and sunny spaces. Together the walls form thresholds and rooms for visitors travelling up and down the slope to explore. Views of the city are hidden and exposed as visitors move through the space. My process began with the form of the shelters as small rooms or caves with areas of repose on the north and south sides. When I pulled the form along the slope, it created a wall-like form that formed interesting shadows, which added visual interest. In my analysis of the site (shown at right) I studied the direction of the sun and wind in different seasons to help me decide the placement of the walls. I enjoyed exploring the placement of different forms in this project, and learning how to keep pushing a design to find new solutions.
