Suburban Densification

Feiyang Yao, Third Year Architecture
John Gamble, Course Convenor

The 3rd year Architectural Design Studio 5 investigates the theme of suburban densification. The design brief calls for a mix of household types to be accommodated on a single suburban lot in Sydney. In this course students explore and analyse the complexities of human patterns of occupation and activity as they unfold over time to inform new configurations. The model shown here shows a mix of household types and their internal organisation configured around central courtyards.
