Project Description

A dream house represents the ideal, perfect space that lives in the imagination. Through de-constructing the dream house and contrasting it with elements of reality, it is brought into a new perspective. This experimental axonometric drawing maps out the real thresholds of a house along with its surroundings and connects them through imaginative elements and bright colors. These components of the project work together to signify the transition from childhood to adulthood and compare fantasy to reality. It evokes childhood memories of playing with specific colorful toys, which is indicative of a time when many people first become interested in art and architecture. The space is given new meaning and viewed in a different way by combining both realistic and imaginative elements.
