For the redesign of the gap, I decided to literally make a big hole where it was. It would be easy to make the gap a little bigger but I think a little tunnel gives it more character.
The change will improve the issue by simply providing more space so that two people can stand there.
I was worried that the structure would fail but with the dome, it makes it so it can still have a foundation and roof but create space for the students to walk through.
I think most people will miss the gap but overtime, I’m sure everyone will appreciate the fact that they can simply walk through it easily.
