Project Description

Part 1 of this assignment was a key factor in how I used the rotation to implement the living on the edge key structure of this collage. Constantly finding new rotations to build that part resulted in a tall infrastructure that lacks in safety, rules, management, materials and many more. These rotations were placed carefully to create this playground of beams flowing through each other, creating new environments in which the slums and buildings built in it are constantly being challenged. The multiple layers of lines forming these buildings generate multiple ways on how these communities strive together. This close contact produces new narrow and tight spaces in which a playground is formed persistently going above what we live in these days. All around, these skyscrapers of structure are a result of  overpopulation and bad management, a system that even then shows that society is always capable of adapting to its consequences.
