WFCity: Land

Urban and housing strategies

by Adam Varga, Studio Architecture III, UMPRUM 2020/2021

Project series WFCity explore the possibilities of discrete assembly via Monoceros. The studio assignment was conducted on various urban/housing scenarios - LAND, COAST and WATER as a reference to an imminent danger of rising seawater levels.

Project COAST explored the border, the thin uncertain line in between water and land, where same building system needs to function in these two different environments.

Lagoons, bays, and shallow waters are all alive. So are the spaces above them, rising on the columns. COAST - WFCity scenario encourages to imagine urban schemes, organized by an algorithm, on the borders between water and land.
