urban apartment
taoyuan - taiwan, private competition

The apartment of a large family looks like a city: it is made of a series of rooms connected by a corridor, that enables connection and independence among them. Moreover, the corridor hosts the inner relationships of the home, as well as the relationships with the outer social environment, exactly like the streets within the city. Anyway, an apartment cannot offer the variety of spaces of the city, neither the continuity of its social dynamics. Thus, the project elaborates on the corridor's capacities to dynamically reconfigure the apartment, and investigates how continuities and discontinuities can be alternatively generated by movable architectural components.
