ARCH 402A: Architectural Design IV Gallery: Odd Lots


This project began with a concept of using original bodies of water to create boundaries for land and commercial use. Combining different land materials in these boundaries transformed the landscape and potential land use in the final phase of this project. The final phase grabbed features from the previous projects including the stacked ground and the fragmented body of water that turned into the two central hubs of the project. The rounded hoods of the buildings act as both additive and negative extensions to provide shade for exterior shared private spaces. The rounded figures place on the ground and roofs of the project are used for vegetation and light respectively.
