to the uncg campus. . .
space. . .
|For me, the space at UNCG is divided to into 3 main sections: Learning, Pedistrian, and Parking.|
The learning portion spacially takes up the largest area, signifying it's importance in my hypothesis.
=power. . .
|As the tallest building on campus, the Jackson library (background) subliminally tells the students that knowledge is power.|
Uncg sets a precedent in it's security features; it's relatively closed off from the rest of the city, well lit at night, and provides round the clock transportation for anyone feeling nervous about walking to their destination.
experience. . .
principles. . . .
site. . .
order. . .
|The Foust building's site is set on top of a small hill, providing a sense of grandness as an experience to all those who walk in front of it. Adding to it's location is a great use of symmetry and order as design principals.|
technology. . .
Most buildings (if not all) used modern building techniques. Modern technology also fills most of the buildings, from nighttime securtity to lighting to computer labs.
surface. . .
|Generally speaking, the surface treatments of the buildings outside are pretty plain; brick, concrete, facia board. But inside the Witherspoon Art Museum, the sculptural treatment of this banded surface is more like a work of art.|
