Beijing, density, urban housing, courtyard house
"My project is a critique od the current architecture of Beijing and its inability to transfer the values, rituals, and social programs of traditional domestic architecture into a rapidly changing contemporary context.
Through translating the courtyard house, a new model for dense domestic space can be created that maintains the salient qualities of the type and in its communal environment, while responding to the new verticality of Beijing."
