Critique comments

There was concern about the lack of seating at the sides of the community hall as well what seemed like not enough response to the site. The suggestion was to break apart more, since this project seems so monolithic compared to the broken up organization of the existing school. This is a cleft in the landscape, but it is not really expressed as such. The use of contour lines to organize the project could be taken further by cutting roof and plan.[more...]


Also, the recommendation was to look at movement through the project. Currently, it appears to not be celebrated, since there is no transition between inside and outside. The way the south side sits under the tree canopy was appreciated.
