Overall intent of design to intermingle multiple circulation paths through studio spaces. The design utilizes a terraced landscape to allow public circulation throughout the site, and provide large gathering

areas where the public would interact with the slanguage studio program. The site slope also serves to frame studios to the community for viewing.
