METRICAL DEVICES | iteration 01 : temporal constructs


Zachary Streitz


This project explores the implications of treating architecture as a device that reveals the presence of time and asks how the experience of time can be shaped, augmented, implicated, changed, measured, or altered.  In contrast to an architecture that seems to exist independently of time, this is a spatial device that registers change, cycle, rhythm and other temporal phenomenon. A nontraditional temporal metric is developed and explored spatially through drawing exercises leading to the design and fabrication of a Metrical Device.
