Form & Function

Form & Function

Architecture continuously redefines itself through iteration, 
either through a series of formal or material typologies as
demonstrated through incremental variations explored not
only through prototypes and models, but through formal
proposals as well as designs.  

Rather than merely focusing on the quantity and speed to
which ideas are documented, the process itself can become
the generator of new types of architectural transformations,
rendering an unprecedented series of results.

The following housing project was designed to accommodate
three specific living styles: the single, a couple, as well as
an entire family unit.  While each living style suggests an
inherently different typology, the simultaneous interaction
between the three form a symbiotic relationship, both
sociologically as well as physically.
