  • Description

  • San Diego State University Interior Design Professor Matthew Higgins developed an innovative teaching tool for aspiring designers called the "space alphabet". Every line, dash, or dot arranged on the grid stands in for walls, columns, or other physical objects, creating a symbolic arrangement and possible experience of three-dimensional space. Depending on the configuration of these symbols, the viewer may find the space ordered or chaotic, pleasant or unpleasant, meaningful or arbitrary. The viewer’s reaction reflects a shared desire to find order in unfamiliar surroundings, notably at places of transition, like an airport.
