suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Steve MOODY: An attempt at increasing density and improving access for pedestrian, bicycle and mass transit in Los Angeles via architectural intervention, “LAND” uses logics of aggregation to create piles of units that adapt to different uses, circulation, and scales. The primary form of the aggregation is in leaning piles that create an over/under condition—terraced units create private outdoor space for residences and pedestrian circulation on top, while roads, mass transit, parking and other service spaces are placed underneath.
