Description

Corner House is an investigation into how a project situates itself in both the physical and figurative sense. The nomenclature 'Corner' speaks more to layers of nuance that affect the site rather than the obvious relationship of its corner occupation. Situated in a quaint 19th century town in Middle America, the project location is confronted with a perplexing conflation of both interstitial and periphery. It is a contextual read that is critical of and projective of its relationship to an old Ford plant and the town's Main Street; as it sits at the threshold between the industrial and pedestrian landscape.
