Honors: Concept images

My concept is about the weaving of different parts into an overall composition. I looked fo images that used a weaving structure in interesting ways.

Honors: Precedent images

When looking for precedents, I searched for showrooms and stores that had interesting ideas for displays. Each of these also have strong linear qualities that flow throughout the whole space, something that I want to do with this project.
