This project explores the use of research techniques and conceptual sketch model building to test and formulate design ideas. We have been selected to design a proposed non-denominational chapel located on the campus of Farmingdale State College. The Colleges aim is to have a profoundly spiritual place that people of all faiths can worship and reflect on life’s events. In order to do so we have to be able to define the public space and façade, accommodate both natural enivironment and build context. The building should be integrated into the frabic of the campus. The design focus is based off the use of light.
