Penumbra

Farah Abad Boulevard ties the city of Sari to the Caspian Sea creating a main tourism route. It is a northern Iran’s routes that creates moments grasping the attention of the observer as continues linking the city to the sea without the acknowledgement of the distance traveled. A boulevard covering diverse buildings, representing different periods of time that creates a metaphoric film sequence; a narrative of perception that differs from one observer to the other.

The main purpose of this project is to create a façade with a static structure that, due to the mobility of the observer’s coordinate, creates a representation of interactive architecture. This entire dynamic originates with exploitation from the absolute contrast of the two endings of the achromatic gray spectrum.  It’s created from vertical surfaces with black and white faces. It constructs unlimited sequences due to the portion of the appearance of black and white sides of the facet module in the creation of a shade of the facet in that specific moment. Sequences of neutral gray alongside an incomparable reflection of environment, creates a chromatic tone that only belongs to that specific experiment of observer in time.
