Through Thick and Thin is a meditation on the spatial implications embedded within the juxtaposition of two plan typologies. A Preforming Arts Center in New Your City, the ground floor is a thick matrix of rooms, as patrons, actors and the public move throughout the plan the architecture produces a closeness. Upon ascending to the second story and one of three theaters, the audience is presented with the thick plans anti-type. Here in the thin plan, the audience is presented with views both across the center and back onto the thick plan below. In moving Through Thick and Thin, we are presented with an architecture that celebrates spatial experiences of gathering, encountering, exploration and communication.
