Oblique

This project proposes a system that replaces vertical and horizontal spatial qualities of living space, resulting in housing without walls. The project uses the oblique to compose a vertically assembled landscape for living. The kit of parts consists of multiple angles to define interpersonal hierarchies and how our bodies experience a space to arrange a range of domestic activities, integrating programme, circulation and structure as a whole in one continuous landscape. Furthermore it challenges the developers’ for-profit model of room-oriented housing by removing internal walls, re-conceiving the political and social aspect of ownership and privacy between residents.
