MORRIS HOUSE in Los Angeles, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

 
July 10th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture

This project is the articulation of an ideal put into action. A polished steel circle, gently overs over the public plaza. The size of the circle exceeds the given area of the plaza, so one end lifts up so that the rest of the circle can comfortably situate itself into the given area. In doing this, two very different conditions are negotiated and resolved, both in a literal and figurative sense.

The polished steel top surface of the circle reflects its surroundings, bringing the sky above down to the ground below.
