Rose of Sharon Chapel
This is a strange piece that I am particularly fond of. I was a part of a group of students that were asked to design, in broad strokes, a few architectural models that reimagined a classic prayer chapel in an urban environment. This is my favorite piece and would be constructed entirely of concrete and glass... I like to think of it as weighty, but organic.
This rough-hewn model was constructed mostly with linoleum. It is held in place with Zap-A-Gap (an acrylate glue) and the lino sits in a series of channels cut into MDF with a dremel tool.
The base is 3/4" plywood, and the entire piece was sprayed with matte grey paint and selectively sanded away. The glass dome is meant to represent the roof of an underground chamber where worshippers could pray in silence. It was salvaged from an old wall clock.
