This hand-drafted exploded x-ray axonometric represents the beginning of the second stage of the series. MuBE contains a complex spatial sequence and this drawing aims to reveal that sequence through the act of explosion. One specific path of circulation was chosen; from there walls were pulled away from that path, but their spacing was preserved to indicate the true narrowness and spaciousness of different corridors. The beams and girders of the path were exploded downward and the ceiling grating was rendered to provide an understanding of the overhead condition. Additionally, the railings along the path were shifted down to demonstrate where the edge of the path was defined by that railing, rather than wall. The void of the below-ground circulation was also pulled out to show the relationship between floor and ceiling that was obfuscated by the explosion of the ceiling from the path. Finally, the large 'bar' that looms over much of the outdoor space of the building was pulled downward and rendered in worms-eye view in order to depict it more closely to how it would be experienced by an occupant on the path.
Elements not connected or conceptually related to the path were more fully exploded.
