INTENSION

A superstructure that explores the spacial voids in relation to movement, time, through the exploration of tensile structures. Restaurants, shopping, and apar tments lift off the ground above the freeway overpass. The new icon creates identity bridging the landscapes and commercial zones of the San Luis Obispo community.


Following rational reasoning of the unconscious, this project formally explores the intuitive and additive processes of design through the physical model, later modeled digitally.
