Urban Remix 2.0

After a lengthy conversation with a friend of mine, I decided to give another pass on the building diagram I created yesterday. Below is the result. [Note: Programs are not set in stone and may change in the course of the semester]

Building Block - Take 2

Building Block - Take 2

Again this is not the design of the building but rather a theoretical approach on how programs might be placed alongside each other within a building. This idea pertains to the initial diagram I created earlier (shown below) and that the interaction between public and private spaces within the framework of today’s social networking (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) has more or less affect how we communicate with each other, and I strongly believe that this form of communication and interaction should influence our built environment [This point probably needs to be argued and proven through the design].  The thesis is in an early stage at the moment  and ideas may be vague or there may be confusion on what’s happening, but any thoughts, and constructive criticism are welcome.
