LANDFORM TECTONICS 2014

VUW BAS ·  2nd Year - Semester 1
Tutor: Mark Southcombe
Typology: Student Housing


The design concept for this student housing project begins to subvert the idea of building and land form through incorporation of the building form and landscape into a similar entity. From a social housing stand point this enables the facilitation for a stronger connection and relationship between the occupants and character of the surrounding context.

The design has been purpose made with a particular interest in tectonics and the spaces between buildings. Spaces between begin to inform the program and functionality of the site rather than the building form dictating the spaces between buildings.
