The project uses the dome as the architectural element to establish the continuum and challenges architecture as an act of endoming and portraiture.
The project draws a parallel between the process of constructing the dome to that of composing a portrait to understand, as architects, how do we create and in relation to what? The portrait as a tool allows us to understand and question the social, historical and cultural context to then abstract and render.
By displacing ground we start to define space. The foundations as frame shift and establish a new identity for the landscape, a new world starts to emerge. Through construction the identity of the world oscillates and develops.
