Urban[e] Objects

BY WOODBURY SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
@ VOL 136 ON JUN 02, 2016

A cohort of Architecture Students from Woodbury University elected Tokyo to conduce fieldwork studies by the theme  Urban[e] Objects. The research proposes new residential strategies through the translation of objects that can exist simultaneously in multiple scales: as a tea-cup or as an urban building. Their research deploys the use of isometric drawings and urban transects and inspiration derived by traditional Japanese drawing techniques to investigate questions of authenticity, translation of vernacular making methods, and interiority and apply them to contemporary challenges of shelter.
