This short project explores the creation of exterior public space through the manipulation of the ground.  The project occupies an empty site near the Auburn University campus.  Linear axes through the site create sight-lines to the periphery, while a system of variegated modules provides unique spaces for each programmatic zone.  
The primary programmatic zones of the site are the cafe, amphitheatre, and outdoor library.  Between these zones are intermediary spaces that contain pockets and connections.  The modular system creates a constant language of excavation throughout the site, while also creating spaces with differing levels of shelter and enclosure.  The site becomes a unique artifact within the landscape for people to explore and inhabit.
Three-week project, completed fall 2020.
