moriyama house redux
Form Studio: Professor Craig Borum
- 1. Research
- 2. Constructing a 'room' in the original moriyama house
- 3. The new house design departs with a continuation of the formal logic of Sanaa’s Moriyama house. The purity and seemingly aleatoric siting of the white cubic volumes is replaced by a new plan, filled with “spatial constructors” produced from door swings, entries, exits and choreographic movement through the dwelling. The space is then reconceived as split booleaned solids; the spatial constructors continuously carving away at the newly solidified volume. Non-rational surface structures emerge on the floor along with two longitudinal wall-forms. The result is a dynamic spatial experience that is at once the precedent study itself as well as a full rejection of it.
