Potential Through Enclosure
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of my thesis is to improve the typical office building’s performance as well as the work place by re-imagining the zone of the building’s enclosure. My position is that building enclosures which are usually thin and flat wrappers could instead, be zones of space that serve multiple functions contribute positively to both the building’s interior and its performance. On the urban scale, a network of these buildings could have a large impact on the city. By rethinking what the enclosure could be, I hope to improve the relationships between the urban fabric and the building, the people working there. Building enclosures are not meant to be thin and flat wrappers, they are meant to be dynamic elements of the building that serve multiple functions that improve the surrounding environment.
