This is the first part of Assignment 4.
For this next assignment; I decided to analyse a building that I am currently designing and how it responds to the environment it’s built in.
As part of an independent research project, I am developing a kind of ideal residential unit, part of a larger affordable housing project in the city of Manaus, Brazil. My main goals with this project are to create an affordable and energy efficient housing unit for the ribeirinho population in the city.
Below there are some rendered perspectives of the residential unit I am designing. It is basically a very narrow house built on stilts. This design is based on the vernacular building typology of Amazonian houses.
