Full Resolution Study (FRS)

Beer Bar

Partner: Henry Bell, Yibo Peng, Jill Jenkins

USC, 2023 Fall

Full Resolution Study (FRS) is too big to be a model but small enough to fit in a room. Unlike a mockup, the FRS is not a small chunk of a larger piece. The study is the project. It consists of 1:1 details and building elements like doors, windows, stairs, roofs, walls, colors, materials, etc.

We wanted to create a place for USC School of Architecture staff and students to gather and communicate. The wooden boards on the wall only partially wrap the space, creating a semi-enclosed space. This semi-open space allows people inside and outside to interact with each other. The skylight on the roof can transmit light to the bar and also echo the slate of the building behind it.
