Master of Architecture (MArch)
I’ve always been interested in how home’s domesticity holds memories of space and objects that link back to people. This thesis explores home’s importance in holding memories of comfort. Yet architecture, being the physical embodiment of home, lacks using home’s ephemeral quality as an advantage in designing space.
This thesis will explore how objects from home that link to architectural parts of home can be used as tools for comfort and familiarity within the public realm. The objectives of this thesis is to create a public intervention that aims to create nostalgia of home.
The project will use home’s ephemeral qualities by analyzing PARTS of architecture and OBJECTS within my home to translate them through a series of plaster/clay models. These PARTS/OBJECTS will then be incorporated into an IMPRINT that brings qualities of home at RISD’s Market Square. These IMPRINTS will be wallpaper that attach to public PARTS that have similar characteristics of home. While continuing to produce and apply IMPRINTS, This thesis will then begin developing an intervention in Brooklyn bridge park. Elements of the previous studies are used in order to create a hyper domestic immersive interior within a public installation.
