Project Narrative:
The layout/circulation of Bert’s Mega Mall was created using sweeping arcs.  Theses arcs were thought of as transitions from one product type to another and are used to encourage customers to walk around the store.

When designing the different entrance areas for the individual sections, we wanted to maintain a masculine and more static and dynamic character, which is inherent in the client’s merchandise.  The overall design of this store was intended to promote the merchandise.

The entrance to the Parts Department uses the technique of pushing and pulling two glass volumes to create two similar, yet distinct entrance ways, while also including an abstract version of the ying-yang symbol.  In the plan of the Parts Department entrance, the representation of the ying-yang symbol was incorporated using the skylight and can be easily identified.  By including the yin-yang symbol, it contrasts with the masculinity of the entrance way and balances the entire design.  The pre-existing structural members were also included into the design as intersecting parts to the circular skylight to help blend it with the more masculine features.
