Architectural Design: Dwelling Code

Project Description

The ‘Minimal Dwelling Code’ generates a spatial configuration of activities by using three key parameters that define the quality of a living space: light, temperature and privacy. The parametric definition of the dwelling allows for it to respond to not only the individual/cultural preferences of the user, but also the specific climatic/physical dimensions of the site.

A user defines a set of activities and the ideal point within a spectrum of light, temperature and privacy for each. Three grids are then identified according to the conditions of the site; each corresponding to one of the said parameters.
