Graduate Thesis – Spiritual Intermediaries by Christina Hoey
Course: Graduate Thesis
Description: Inspired by the ripple effect created in still water, the design focuses on the intermediary space within Water’s Memorial AME church in Philadelphia, PA. The challenge was to develop a design that promotes community within the church body, as well as, with the surrounding neighborhood. This is achieved by working within the volume of space to create a welcoming transition from the profane through to the sacred.
