This was the study of long span structures associated with an aquatic center. We
started out by researching natural shell systems. Specifically with a study on the bivalve, a unique double shell organism with a hinge point. By abstracting and dissecting the bivalve of a double shelled system with a center hinge point it creates and forms an arched roof that allows MEP to run through a double layer roof system. A second layer of pillowing was created by pulling up lines
that were taken from the projection of the natural shell. This area housed the related aquatic programs and acted as cushion for the downward loads.
