Case studies unit ribbon
Case studies on residential units determined alternative morphological approaches that inherently facilitate adaptability, by evaluating the poly-valency of room- and unit sequences, and their adjacency and connectivity. Exemplary unit ribbons have been developed that go beyond conventions of ‘units’ as hermetic entities, and that are generic enough to also allow appropriations beyond purely residential ones.
Layout strategies derived from case studies
Unit ribbon sample: Typical Singaporean constraints for multi-storey public housing have been taken as a base.
