modelScape is a lobby space conceived as a slice of a larger artificial landscape. Fundamental techniques of surface manipulation (extrude, slant, slope, etc.) are employed to address the needs of the client; i.e. public seating, passage through, and a display for an architectural model. The unilateral rib-structure echoes the rhythmic aesthetic found throughout the interior in which modelScape sits in. The rib-structure mimics a method of architectural model production – the artificial landscape therefore functions as a site for a model within a model.
