SPATIAL SEQUENCE DIAGRAM
MODULES OF HABITATION
The aim is to create modules of habitation that can sprawl and interconnect to provide a multi-layered/relational living environment. The curved shape is arrived at to dictate spatial relationships and proximities through inevitably providing a courtyard or atrium in which light can be dispersed into the gardens both naturally and mechanically through heliostats.
The garden is seen as an essential part of retired living, providing beauty and well-being. Gardens can be experienced in the privacy of every back yard, even as the building rises vertically. There are also semi private gardens in gathering spaces to provide quality social nodes. The module mediates the horizontal plane to create raised multiple ground levels to enable a neighborhood street feel on every floor.
The facade forms an archive of Georgia’s vernacular architecture, and the memory and trace of those that inhabit the facility. 100 years from now, in the context of a hyper intelligent architectural environment, this facility will be the conversation that Georgia and the world has with its past as remnants are preserved and examined.
