Civic Mutations

Open to All

The two illustration below portrays the concept diagram of the conventional and new method of interaction. In the first scenario, spaces are organized within an enclosed structure. Interaction between parties are limited to the paths within the confined area.

Conventional Method of Interaction in Spaces

Spatial Relationship in Conventional Method of Interaction

The people in gray represent public figures, thus the scenario above does not allow any spatial relationship and interaction with the general public.

New Method of Interaction in Spaces

Spatial Relationship in New Method of Interaction

In the scenario above, spatial and social relationship between private and public figures are explored and integrated with public life. At the moment, I don’t have a program to support this relationship between public and private. Suggestion such as a supermarket and a civic center like a courthouse have been made to me, but I’m not fully committed to that idea yet, however, shopping mall/retail is one direction I’m leaning towards. Because the final building will be a mixed use development, I’m not particularly sure what’s a suitable program to go along with a shopping mall that will support my thesis. Maybe a hostel or dormitory?
