Awkward, dressed is the awkward and monolithic gestures explored and exploited in the idea of a suite, a series. Formally, this project is monolithic, but also relatively light by incorporating “feet” and “legs” into their form. These qualities are in response to the post modern problems of human and scale. In addition to the formal gesture, the skin or envelope of the buildings also contributes to their seriality and monolithic qualities. One of the most important aspects of this project is the skin articulation. The surfaces are reduced to lines. The usage of color, density, and overlaps attempts to redress the geometry and therefore disguise its monolithic qualities.
