With bristol paper as a vehicle I created a unit that could be manipulated to develop a structural/sculptural system influenced by an ecology.  Drawing inspiration from the behavior of sand dunes  [solidify, consolidate, loosen, scatter],  I aggregated the unit to develop a variety of spaces, culminating into a student center/public gallery.  I cited my design along a scenic outdoor path on the university campus.  This was a study of how a single unit, through manipulations could diversify social interactions.
