thomas SCHAITER + manuel SEISS: the working- process of this project is mainly driven by pragmatic external and internal parameters, by stepwise introduction of algorithmic intelligence- and executive – layers. first we focused on the development of a master pan, with fluid and associative quality’s and gradient transitions. we translated these characteristics into a cluster of residential buildings with further more complex external and internal influences.

then the project went through the closer scales, from the precise suburban definition and further correlation, to finally the interior, its organization of space with the general idea and challenge of a low weight structure. for the different purposes of the components, several systems were designed, with a close look at their overall correlation, step by step refined and enhanced.
