As promised here is a look at the final product from Sam Jacob and Jimenez Lai's Repitition Studio.
But First. I wanted to thank everyone for reading this blog and making it one of the Top 12 blogs on Archinect. Very Awesome. Thank You.
For the mid-term I investigated the idea of the conflation of Section, Plan and Scale though a model and a large drawings. Patterns and Architectural drawing conventions were used to create an Architectural Drawing of a Non-Architecture.
The Final was a distillation process of lessons learned from the earlier work to produce an Architecture. Color was taken out of the equation to bring the drawings closer to more normative conventions, but pattern was still used as a means of defining territories within the project.
Programmatically, the building is comprised of large urban mansions and more dense "couch houses." Its perforated cubic form is suspended above its site.
Thanks for checking it out.
