Gallery: A “SUPER!” BLOCK

Instructor: Farnoosh Rafaie

The superblock explores Burbank and its need for more housing in respect to an increase in more public and outdoor spaces. My proposal is a series of walls that envelope various programs and communal areas for people to interact with. The wall forms serve as multistory housing structures that create different spatial conditions that encourage people to engage with and move through the site, thus privileging the outdoor spaces over the interior housing spaces.
