"Shape is all the geometrical information that remains when location, scale and rotational effects are filtered out from an object" - David George Kendall
The objective of Michael Meredith's (MOS Architects) studio entitled “Mediums” was to investigate “medium specificity” in architecture. The studio’s basic premise was that “the problems of medium speciﬁcity can be addressed by exacerbating multiple medium speciﬁcities into impure, awkward, and paradoxical recombinations.” We were asked to select mediums that are seemingly incompatible and attempt to reconcile them in the design of a church sited at the southern end of the High Line Park in Manhattan. In this project, shape and logo are employed to create a scheme that is simultaneously figural and flat.
