ARCH 6410: Accelerated Architectural Design I

Description: 

For my design of this urban mausoleum in Bologna, Italy, I took inspiration from barnacles. I made a cluster of barnacles and mirrored the barnacles on top of themselves to create massive butterfly pillars. I then voided out the center of these heavy pillars and went below grade to create space for urn placement and private reflection. I then projected the roofline of the structure onto the ground plane to aid in my design of the surrounding reflection pools and gardens.
