site analysis plan
architectural drawings and models using rhino
The rapid and profound disruption to life prompted by COVID-19 will have lasting impacts on architecture and the built environment. Houses have become sites for both economic production and the education of children. This project examined alternative forms of domestic architecture from history and other cultures where multiple generations and multiple programs have co-existed. It explored the potential for creating a more inter-connected dwelling, combining living, working, and play both indoors and out. How can a house provide community, independence, and flexibility? This framework is intended to redefine good design and transform the day to day practice of architecture in every firm and on every project to achieve a zero-carbon, equitable, resilient, and healthy built environment.
