An urban farm in the heart of downtown Muncie

This study of aggregated textures - specifically, zebra skin patterns - applied to architecture was carried out in various stages. The first being aggregate research to understand the pattern and its driving forces. Material explorations followed the research, which were then applied to various building functions. Primarily, daylighting, wall enclosure, and long-span structure were explored. The rules from the aggregate research combined with the material explorations led to the generation of a farmers' market proposition.
