ARCH 505B: Graduate Architecture Design I Gallery: Clusters and Aggregates: Housing and Urbanism


This scheme explores different conceptions of linear elements bound by a continuous outdoor space. The smallest unit, a bedroom, can be modeled as a point, while habitable space increases with other configurations of the basic elements, such as two bedrooms that can be inhabited as a set or separately. This process continues up to the amenity space, which is the longest unbroken enclosed space in the project. The program within each unit or set of spaces is oriented towards the outdoor corridor, and the orientation switches back and forth as the inhabitants traverse through the project, yet is aligned between floors.
