This was an undergraduate student project by Zakery Snider for Beth Blostein's ARCH 341 course, Autumn 2004. This project involved investigation of fundamental contextual, formal, and tectonic issues of wood as a building material.
"The project recognizes and utilizes the ground plane to negotiate the experiential dichotomy of space below as well as above ground at the vast airfield site. Formally, the building emerges suspended by the ground plane while blurring the dichotomy along three experientially diverse paths through a system of coated glass and semi-transparent fiberglass layers of skin. These layers work in conjunction with reflection pools in the lower rock garden that simultaneously provide a serene environment and reflect images of the sky around three replica Wright Brothers airplanes making experiential the timeline from history to future while blurring the condition from land to sky.
