Segregation (Both/And) Integration explores the both/and condition of dualities versus the traditional either/or. A bridging gallery and unifying Cor-ten steel facade integrate segregated community and institute buildings. The gallery creates an uninterrupted plaza that serves both institute and community. Gallery, community and institute spaces integrate at the main stair, which through the use of reclaimed sinker cypress, evokes a front porch condition for the institute, allowing it to be both public and private, rarefied and everyday, segregated and integrated within the community.
