THE MORNING CLUB
This project consisted on utilizing the existing structure of the Peninsular Paper Company, located in Ypsilanti, MI. with two different performance spaces: a visual auditorium and an audio auditorium. Our team decided to abstract the nature of each performance and create a program which allowed visitors to occupy this space during morning hours in order to enhance their daily morning routine. While the auditory performance consisted of an instrumental component which was allowed to be heard all throughout the building; the visual performance consisted of a gathering space meant to allow visitors to view the sun in the morning, as the culminating point of their visit.

He wants to learn more about how parametric design is being adopted in professional practices, as well as the impact that this technology has in the design process and its outcomes.
