Last Thursday the Paris Studio spent class time sketching, observing, and documenting the site conditions of Palais de Tokyo, a contemporary art museum, which will serve as the site for their semester project. This site was selected for its unique sectional quality due to being located on a hillside, as well as its use of concrete as the major building material. This week students work towards developing a set of shared drawings to gain a wholistic understanding of the building and its site. Stay tuned for progress updates throughout the semester.
