Project #3

You have been selected to design a proposed non-denominational chapel located on the campus of SUNY Farmingdale. The College wants this to be a profoundly spiritual place that people of all faiths can worship and reflect on life’s events. The College believes this can be achieved by the creative use of light. The College has outlined a preliminary program that is listed below. A site has yet to selected on campus; the College is looking for guidance from the Architect. The building should be integrated into the fabric of the campus. The College explicitly requests the design not be symmetrical.

                I followed the guidelines to come up with a simple non-symmetrical solution to what SUNY Farmingdale has asked for. I incorporated a simple radial plan for efficacy but at the same time makes the hierarchy more obvious. Here is the step by step process that a went through to achieve what SUNY Farmingdale wanted:
