Final animation for AAD summer studio Lectured by Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu at GSAPP.
The main theme of this studio was to respond to the question 'Is modernity our antiquity?' To find an answer to this question the work of Aldo Van Eyck as well as other members of Team X was researched to help foster ways of placing humanity, connectivity, as well sensitivity into the heart of the Wyckoff housing project. The problem in this specific case was isolation and disconnection in a Brooklyn neighborhood created by the NYCHA project. The goal for this solution was to densify the site with new housing, a school, and a public plaza reconnecting the neighborhood as well as reconfiguring the three existing modernist towers to engender a new form of social collectivity.
Andrei Tarkovsky was studied to generate ideas and inspiration for different ways of expressing the architectural idea.
