URBAN POROSITY

Innovative Workspace

The aim of this project is to use the operative term of porosity to explore the relationship of our constructions to the local conditions and those within it through the production of form. Porosity operates across scales from the urban realm to the material conditions of architecture. It serves as a means to interrogate fundamental architectural conditions such as the relationships between a building’s  interiority and the exterior public realm, the vertical spatial connections between floors, or perhaps the mediation of the environment through its enclosure. In prioritizing the exploration of urban form generation over spatial-program organization we seek to explore the experiential potential of spaces that could be programmed in multitude of ways.
