A project began to take shape while I visited Washington State in August 2011. While driving along the countryside roads near my Nana's house, it became glaringly apparent that barns were everywhere; some in disrepair and others relics in full working order. I then realized how much I miss seeing barns when driving around (my then, residence) Long Island. These feelings inspired the thought of bringing a symbolic piece of architecture from the place I identify as home, to the place where I then resided.


Some of the topics that I thought about throughout the construction of Fortitude included the similarities between architecture, the body and abstract symbolism, and the interconnection of identity, memory, and place.
