My client is a student; the site is 711.
Talk about the parasite, parasite exists in animal kingdom and plant kingdom. It reminds me of bird "parasitic" nest on the tree and Boston ivy "Parasitic" on the wall.
So my design inspired by this. The 711 have five pillars, in my design, the pillars like trees, I imitate nest shape to design this space (see fig. 7). This space is in the air, it can save the space, people can cross the street. In the future, globe population will explode. Like the movie, the human scale said,
" we have 3.6 billion people live in city, 50% of the world population, That's going to rise to 6.5 billion people by 2050. We almost to double the urban acitivity of our cities in 40 years."
"In the future, 80% population will live in city"
The bottom space is sleep, the top space is social space on the roof. The design style of bottom and top space is uniform which is network structure. In my imagine, one pillar has one student in the same space like my design. It can become community or dormitory. A student can go to top space for social (see fig. 6). A student can study discuss school work, or entertainment activities, party or else. I think physical social is important, especially student. A lot of students have heavy school work, and daily life is going to school or back to home. Social is very important to people like I mentioned, In the movie the human scale, the designer said, socially is good for health to physical and psyche. People do not want social in the high building. This is why I chose roof to student social space.
