Space of the

Alienated Spectator

 

Year: 1st Year 2nd Semester

Type: Cultural,Public Space,Suburban

Program: Gameday Viewing Platform

Location: Mississippi State Campus

Scale: 100 sqft

 

     The space of the alienated spectator described a space that had an elevated view of the jumbotron adjacent to the football stadium on campus.  The project was to design an elevated space that enhanced the senses as they related to viewing a sporting event.

  Initially a "headgear" was constructed.  The headgear was a volume that controlled sound through a system of voids.  This system was based on elevating sounds from the playing field while mitigating crowd noise.

   The concepts of sound control in headgear were translated into an elevated platform comprised of a solid vs. filligree language.  The solid mass would capture sound from the stadium while the filligree elements allowed the people to inhabit this sound volume.  This system of thin linear members allowed the sound to penetrate the habitable space from all angles.  This would theoretically create a surround sound effect creating a strong sense of immersion into the sporting event.
