Extension to the unbuilt Salk Institute | La Jolla, California
A serialized set of 6 studios and apartments extends west, a proposal of an addition to the unbuilt meeting house of the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. Built upon the catalyst of a modified artist’s studio cube, the ribbon of concrete unrolls across a long courtyard, capped with a gallery overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Each living unit provides contemplative privacy while the studio encourages collaboration and communication around the common ground of the interior courtyard. Keeping the large operable walls allows the studio to adapt and make use of La Jolla’s nearly always favorable weather.
