Specialization: ADVANCED ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
'The Life of Buildings'
Presented here are the AAD's systematic inquiries on formal exploration through surface articulation and formation. The brief for this task was to pay attention to surface conditions, structuring events and spatial organization through generic, scaleless and dexterous models.

'Interlocking Modular Assemblies'
APD students attempted to construct a kinematic system made out of interlocking elements (Kinematic systems are defined here as bodies that function as a singular one). Structural soundness is achieved by each unit constraining one another in an interlaced fashion; somewhat redolent of stone arch construction, this system offers formal variance through reversible and re-configurable arrangements.
