Dance and architecture share a similar necessity: space; both the dancing body and architecture manipulate space for movement. For this reason, dance informs the architecture of the Mt. Airy center for Dance. The project is located in the Mt. Airy community in Philadelphia on a site with an existing barn ruin. The concept translates to the existing and new architecture responding like dancers do during a performance.
This project was explored through collaging, hand drawing, model making and other mixed media.
