Type;

proposal for housing system 

Tutor:

James Carey,
Raphael Kilpatrick

Context;

Scattered urban interior

Location;

Detroit, Michigan

A studio that really opened up the potentiality of design and reinforced the importance of being aware of not dictating how people inhabit space, instead, giving agency to its user to dictate how space is inhabited and also allowing space to be adaptable to different situations and conditions. Through a series of explorations, a modular housing system is designed for an abandoned building located in Detroit to address the idea of accessibility to the concerns of affordable housing and sense of community. The design is, therefore, aware of flexibilities, which allows adaptions for potential changes, from daily to life long.
