  Groundswell 2006

Groundswell evokes the dynamic movement of the subway with its form transitioning between two body postures: leaning and sitting. The complexity of the design results from mapping the transition from one position to the other. The result is not only an adaptable form, but one in which the formal peaks and alcoves encourage social interaction between participants waiting on the electropolished stainless steel benches.
