DUTCH EMBASSY ANALYSIS

The Netherlands Embassy in Berlin by OMA is alternately portrayed as an empty cube with a solid pathway spiraling through it, or a solid cube with a pathway carved into it. Both of these approaches belie the necessary spatial complexity that arises from the reaction of the programmatic spaces to these gestural moves. The aim of this project was to visualize the dizzying array of lines and planes that emerge from the box-and pathway form, through drawing, physical modeling, and animation.
