SKYVIEWING HOUSE

ARCH 2015: 2nd year BArch studio at Virginia Tech
2-week project
Fall 2013 to 2017

How does the building meet the sky?

The prompt was to make a place for a person or a group of people to view the sky from inside of a building. As the first freestanding building project of the semester, they are asked to situate the building on a site.

Begin with the roof. How does it meet the sky?
How is the presence of the sky made apparent?
Directly or indirectly?
How is the sky revealed?
In sequence, in concentration, slowly, or quickly?
