(something like this,
in a nine-square grid)
A Cricket Club
The project explores the theme of generic/specific,
transforming generic architectural elements into specific fragments that serve
the program of a cricket club. The project heavily samples historical precedent
of baroque churches, transforming through the process of extrusion and abstracting
against the grid systems of the modernist nine-square.
The formal operation, then, becomes the exercise of carving out and occupying the poche. The formal irregularity of plan results from the baroque fragment creates faux construction grid, allowing the circulation to flow around the poche.
