A dynamic expression of movement in architecture
MetadataShow full item record
Architecture should be a free-flowing and dynamic expression of form and space. This architectural expression should run freely; proceed steadily and continuously; and appear harmonious while at the same time seeming forceful (marked by energy and vigor) and expressed in a metaphorical way. The metaphorical representation In architectural terms can be of two kinds: biomorphic or abstract. From free-flowing forms (biomorphic) to fragmented shapes (abstract), this is an expression of movement. Using these forms of architectural expression, I want to create an image which will reinforce the design of a transportation facility. This facility type being a bus terminal which will be a place instantly recognizable by travelers, fulfill their expectations as they arrive, and offer them a memorable impression as they depart. The context for my thesis is located in an undeveloped area on the northwest part of San Antonio's Central Business District. This area is easily accessible by the two major Texas State Highways (135 and 110), and downtown streets.
