Branner 2018-2019: Jordan Miodownnik - Mind the Gap, Architecture of the In-Between

Is the purpose of a doorway to make all feel welcome? Or meant to exclude? Can it blur the line between inside and out? Separate holy from profane?

This proposal seeks to illustrate the inherent, but often unrealized, potential of the transitional spaces of the built environment. Exploring the architectural typology of the front porch, I seek to ask broader questions about how we treat spaces that bridge the gap between public and private, inside and out.
