Microunit Housing and Hotel
Penndesign 601 Design Studio III

The project is the hybridization of a hotel and residential building in high density urban area of Tribeca, New York city. Public green spaces around the site, ie: St. John and Washington-market parks, work as an inspiration to create new types of vertical garden spaces within the building. Based on the study of Part-to-whole relationship, trying to extract fusing and interlocking, inter-relationship parameters to construct the aggregation of hotel and residential units from inside and out. Vertical gardens from inside and out as public program organize the units and breaks down traditional level-to-level spatial systems, introducing a way to simulate the movement and interaction of people and nature.
