Group Efforts

The goal is not just to develop student housing but to create a student dwelling, which is more of a dialogue of physical structure and human activity. A relationship between the tangible and intangible aspects of housing. Different cultures have different forms of home that is a product of long-lasting diffuse of knowledge shared by all for all. Thus the model becomes a result of the collaboration of many people across periods of time. The International House celebrates individuality, differences, collaboration, and expression. The project aims to provide a framework to re-focus back onto the individuals who make up the international house instead of hiding them behind a singular face.
