Students: David Eskenazi

Non-axisymmetric Disruptions

Students: Seyed Ehsan Ayatollah, Georgios Smyrlis, Abhishek Sakpal
Studio Title: ESTm
Instructor: Hernan Diaz Alonso & Ivan Bernal

Garden House

Students: Ida Hammarlund
Studio Title: Hernan Diaz Alonso XLAB Spring 2011
Instructor: Hernan Diaz-Alonso

The project investigates the notion of the artificial garden imitating nature. The structure of the dispersed living spaces are a figural continuation of the garden landscape. It is an examinations of the displays of intimacy set forward by projects like the Farnsworth house and the Glass house, being translated into levels of intricacy and levels of privacy through different transparencies.
