This project is primarily an investigation of the potential for movement in architecture. Parts of the building are connected to the Boston Harbor boat locks. Undermining the conventional attributes of stasis and permanence, the kinetic aspect of this building provides an opportunity to explore the ways in which architectural geometry can redefine itself through movement. The project engages movement through a series of eight static states determined by the positioning of three kinetic elements within the building. These pieces are driven with the logic of a binary counting mechanism for the boat lock. The eight static states redefine access and entry as well as geometric readings of the form.
