A project simple in form and function for a progressive university campus. The project addresses the treatment of utilitarian buildings inserted into an architecturally sensitive fabric. The masks that stood eight meters tall acted as a noise barrier as well as mitigating the views to the vehicles that parked behind them. The shadow play was a reminder of culture and tradition.
