robust morphologies & emergent tectonics
project team: steven ma/ tri do/ sanne kampinga
suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
“the intercalated urban system extends to the integration of horizontal, vertical, and diagonal movement at a range of speeds and viscosities. movement patterns develop as an emergent system of organization, and in combination with tectonic ordering systems, challenge the tyranny of centralized core and associated striation of space. this urban topology implies seamless connectivity through circulation patterns, extending into and reprogramming adjacent systems and spaces within the moma.
through the analysis of these circulation patterns, and the implementation of switch-stops and a distributed core, morphological patterns are extracted to inform the overall structure, organization, and programming of the tower.”
