The Wall and the Death Strip [2014]

A proposal to reorganize the Berlin Wall memorial site. The walkthrough animation was created following a fourth year travel abroad studio in the School of Architecture of Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati.

1989: The Death Strip divided a city into East and West.

2014: Reoccupying the Death Strip. The current wall memorial site is littered with artifacts as a factual preservation of history but does little to evoke an emotional response. An insertion, a circle, bounded between two walls, attempts to capture the tension the wall created The effect of registering the presence of others without direct contact is achieved by using a one- way mirror.
