Urban Block

Linbei Huang, Second Year Architecture

The 2nd year Architectural Design Studio 3: Urban Block addresses the generation of architecture in an urban condition. This explores the Terrace House as representative of a formal, spatial and material language of residential architecture and its integration within urban public space. The model shown here illustrates the key formal gesture of a gently curving roofline that establishes a relationship between the old and new elements of the site and its topography.
