Dormitory - concept
2016 / Brooklyn, New York. Critic: Andrew Lyon. In collaboration with Alex Elguera.
A “mat building” is a large-scale, high-density structure organized on the basis of an accurately modulated grid. Its framework acts as a flexible armature for program, circulation, and space. Through a second layer of facade, its modulated interior is blended. We looked to Josic, Candilis, and Wood’s Freu Universitat and Morphosis Architect’s Public Housing Project in Madrid for mat concept and design inspiration.
