Time Capsule Project — Part II

Why did I choose pearl shell as the form of my Time Capsule?

How did I connect a simple pearl shell to the grand concepts of architecture/architectural design?

The reasons that I chose pearl shell were, metaphorically: 1. Pearl shell is an object that you may find unexpected surprise (pearls) inside sometimes 2. Pearl shell is a medium that holds ‘treasure’ (pearls). In this case, my items are my treasure/peals and therefore the pearl shell is my time capsule.

Building my prototype:

Materials that I used

· A butterhead lettuce container

· The core of paper towel

· Gift packaging tapes and flowers

· Scissors and Elmer’s glue
