    Threshold

    Starting with the idea of a boarder, I created an interaction between the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.  However, I didn’t see this boarder as a line on a map, but rather an area of space.  A space within the line, giving it thickness, area, and density, thus creating a threshold.  With the program of a tollbooth, the convergence between these two states became an interaction of cars, trains, humans, and nature.  Evolving from a corner condition of the site, these elements began to negotiate with one another.
     
    With my preliminary pen plot drawings, a language of convergence and overlap began to build.  These intersecting lines created a build up of density in specific areas of the drawing.  Using these points, I began to imagine how they would respond in a three-dimensional space.  I began to conceive of how they could influence a mesh or a surface.  A hierarchy of structure and a three-dimensional mass was formed by these controlling points, creating an enclosure with an inside, an outside, and circulation.
     
    Through illustrative explorations I sought out relationships; relationships not only of space, but also of interaction; an imaginative habitable space that depicts experiential moments; ideas of how and where the space can be used, and how it can create unity.
