The line holds architectural implications. Naïve, cartoon, ortho, spline: each linetype becomes inextricably affiliated with the architectural project it delineates. This project examines the relationship between representation and project, proposing the possibility of a new category of linetypes: “bad lines.” The bad line is defined by its marginalization – it is methodically removed from architectural representation. It is wobbly, chamfered, fat, thin, sketchy, broken, imprecise, or ill-formed. Typically pushed aside in architectural practice, these lines carry untapped potential. In this proposal, a weathered pavilion is repurposed for a new installation. The translation of the materials generates a loose minimalist pavilion; and the twisted, bowed, and crooked lumber approximates the bad line. Bowed lines salvages otherwise scrap lumber while leveraging its imperfections for novel forms and material effects.
