Fall Erdman Studio- Final Presentation

These are from presentations I sat in on at the end of last quarter. The studio was taught by David Erdman who also taught the Tech Seminar in the Summer Quarter. As with that class, this studio began with minimal surface geometry growing through a process of accumulation to develop a mixed-use high rise in Singapore. The goal was to maximize area on a minimal footprint while questioning the archetype and image of the tower. Groups considered constraints such as conveyance systems, and structural footprints but they seemed to take a backseat to the imagined spatial possibilities from non-orthogonal, gridless organizations.
