Intersection Housing

This project addresses the social isolation that can result from the lack of communal space and homogeneity in the superblock typology. Adopting prefabricated construction techniques common to the superblock typology, the project demonstrates new possibilities for modular housing that maximises spatial variation and facilitates neighbourly engagement. Eight different modules are pushed, pulled and interlocked to explore spatial diversity and opportunities for shared space. The idea of privacy is challenged, exploring a scale from the most secluded human activities, to most public. This is a contemporary model of communal housing, shifting value to the shared, and exploring relationships between old and new.
