Re-du Haut is a project generated for a faculty exhibition at the University of Illinois Chicago in 2013. It is an elaboration of previous themes within my work: Figural plan, Poche, and Vague Silhouettes. In addition the project rethinks the notion of plan as generator to look for new ways to use architectural references as a generative device and a means to engage in a disciplinary conversation. The project was generated by scaling the plan of an Iconic master work to fit within a 30’x60’ box. The three dimensional reinterpretation of this reference plan and its interaction with the bounding box produces an interior that is organized by three distinct figures that osculate back and forth between figure and void. As one moves around and through the project one’s perception of the three figures are always changing due to the use of color and transparency. This is an attempt to translate the figural ambiguities of the plan into spatial and visual ambiguities. The project's ambiguities are meant to engage the viewer and undermine the legibility of the original architectural reference. Only through a thorough reading of the plan would the reference become completely legible.
