In 1993, The Storefront for Art and Architecture commissioned a collaborative building project by artist Vito Acconci and architect Steven Holl.
From the Storefront website:
"The project replaced the existing facade with a series of twelve panels that pivot vertically or horizontally to open the entire length of the gallery directly onto the street. The project blurs the boundary between interior and exterior and, by placing the panels in different configurations, creates a multitude of different possible facades."
Consider how the treatment of the facade challenges conventional divisions between interior and exterior space as well as distinctions between private and public environments. How could your own design explore similar tactics to generate an architecture within which threshold conditions transform in response to various modes of occupation and the rhythms of the city?
