Embodying the world of a hobbyist through intentional design strategies was the goal of this 4-week design project. In attempting to design a Hobbyist’s Retreat, students explored the capacity of design to support and articulate the hobbyist practices within a 19th century masonry building. Here the design sought to bring regional birds into the building and magnify their songs through a domed insertion that re-oriented the birdwatcher’s domestic space.
