Framework for Living Systems

Housing developed by the real estate market is generally designed on the basis of the homogenization and standardization of individuals within our society. Our project uses a lot adjacent to The Highline—a setting for mediocre high-end housing—as a prototype proposal to question this inadequate system and to explore an architecture that frames the constant changes in social structure in regards to genders, constitution of family, individual and collective needs, and the infinitely diverse relations between living and working in society generated by modern means of production.
