Art Camp

The focus is to design a three season art camp that provides different studio spaces, public and sleep quarters in Frick Park.

The main concept of this art camp is to create art through observing and understanding the surrounding conditions. I selected this site because of its diverse nature. There are different degrees of human interventions at this site. Through creating this art camp, I introduced a moment of pulse and connection among all the passages. A gallery space is added to the program to offer a connection between the art camp and Frick Park.

The studios are a series of modular components that respond to the landscape in different ways to fulfill different programmatic needs. The painting/photography studios are porous extensions into the site. The indoor working area has a visual connection with the site but at the same time provides a sense of privacy. The sculpture studio is located among the tree canopies. At the same time it is exposed to nature but with the highest degree of privacy.
