Permeate

UC Berkeley | ARCH 100B Studio | Instructor: Jay Atherton | Spring 2014

Permeate proposes a mixed-use community center in the SOMA district in San Francisco with a central interest in raising food awareness. A wooden lattice work system is employed as the façade, whose variability calibrates the light intensity and public-private relationships in the building. A similar language governs the interior, allowing for visual continuity of partitioned spaces. Ultimately, these strategies serve to circulate energy throughout the project both symbolically and performatively.
