ARCH 605A: Graduate Architecture Design II Gallery: USC Village International House

The Capsules

The Capsules refer directly to the capsule-like windows of the building that feature spatial quality at the façade. The project uses rounded arches from Romanesque architecture as inspiration to form a series of “halved arches” on plan. These “halved arches” are connected to form walls, stacked to form volumes, and overlapped to form shared spaces.
