Architect and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Art Wiebke Theodore is featured in the June 2010 issue of Maine Home+Design magazine.
In the article, "Blurring the Boundaries," Theodore and her husband Steven, partners in their design firm Theodore + Theodore Architects, participate in a Q&A about how architectural design can create the illusion of more space and foster interaction between inside and outside.
An excerpt from the article:
Entering a room on a corner rather than the middle emphasizes the diagonal length and makes the room seem larger.
The placement of windows in a corner connects the space more strongly with the outside, and makes the corner disappear.
Locating the sill of windows close to or at the floor level increases the dynamic quality of the room and blurs the distinction between inside and outside.
The Theodores co-taught ES/VART 233 Architecture and Sustainability in fall 2004.
