  • aspen studio | WILLIS PEMBER

    Willis Pember Architects was the second firm I studied with during a summer studio in Aspen. The client was interested in building a drive-through coffee shop fabricated from shipping containers on a previously selected site. Pember pushed our studio to focus on the phenomenology of the site and also its functional aspects. A pedestrian path engages the nearby bus stop as a source of business. The shipping containers are pulled apart to allow for this necessary interaction. [academic, 2013]
