Title: Private Space in a Public Venue
Author(s): Hayne, Britta
Abstract: "In my study of Architecture, I have been particularly interested in the play between public and private spaces. Each semester has produced exploration of varying ideas related to this basic concept. This image, a photograph of one of my study models, shows how the feeling of seclusion can be created in the most public of venues, a public restroom. The main exploration in this project was the use of form; each “swirl” is a stall, which becomes more private the deeper you enter. I also worked with the idea of lamination and continuing surfaces; even the fixtures are one with the wall, such as the sink shown in the image. The model was built at ½” scale out of sheet metal and foam. "
