Thesis: Let’s Negotiate

Robert Guertin


Here is an iteration for a diaphanous spatial condition, where concepts of super use, code, spatial appropriation + post production create a new form of architectural typology. This new architecture aims to facilitate the users’ potential to continue the process of creation as well as bring to light the importance of manipulation of building codes. Unfolding over time, this iteration reacts to ever-changing building codes and infrastructure. These studies play with existing architectural cliches and prescribe a self-determinant role in out-thinking the building code bureau. In a realm where program is often ambiguous and merely plays house to architectural form, this new method self prescribes itself to a more intrinsic methodology of spatial exploration.
