At the new entrance to the student union building the ramp for handicapped users which is often placed outside the central functions of a space, is used here as the main generator of the design. The ramp is the ‘spine’ of a casual communal meeting
space which can also be an outdoor theater for dance performances or for informal student meetings. Wood was used to unify all design elements, turning the entire plaza into one sculptural element. The distinctive warmth of the material also provides the appropriate surface for the dancers and for the sitting elements.
