BIG, BLACK, BLANK Re-interpretation of Pyramid
Tirana, Albania
The new design for the pyramid of Tirana aims to disrupt any singular reading of the original pyramid through the use of strange symmetries. While the new design loosely conforms to a central axis as an overall gesture, the edges, folds, and details of the pyramid depart from any strong sense of symmetry upon closer inspection. Any indication of symmetry or a singular order within the pyramid, is purposely skewed – sometimes just so slightly. Where some elements seem mirrored; there may be a mismatch in scale.M.Arch- Fall 2015
