A PRECISE FORM OF ANONYMOUS ORIGIN
The building for San Giorgio is a simple structure. Its kin are sheds, buildings assembled of readily available materials for simple shelter or use. It is framed of wood studs and rafters,
painted white. All exterior surfaces are clad in translucent polycarbonate sheets. The interior is lined in black painted plywood. The plywood lining is folded down from the apex of the volume, allowing daylight to enter into the interior. The structure is a precise form of anonymous
origin; an indeterminate presence in the landscape. The porch is a place for all to gather; a place from which to look out and survey one’s surroundings. The bench within proposes a place to sit.
It is a space for looking inward, under light amidst darkness.
