URBAN BLOCK

MASTER IN COLLECTIVE HOUSING

ANDREA DEPLAZES WORKSHOP ASSISTED BY FERNANDO ALTOZANO

AUTHORS: ALCALA, DANIEL 

SUBJECT: BUILDING DEPTH

PLACE: AGUASCALIENTES, MÉXICO.

The aim of this workshop was to explore solutions for residential projects by working on different building depths. These varied from 6 to 21 m, and the spectrum of results ended in very different responses; from hollowed walls to multiple patio structures passing through double oriented slabs. After having defined the main unit distribution (12 m depth), I worked on the solution of cores, the ensamble of an urban block (mixed use), and new typologies (for a wider range of users). The project seeks to change paradigms in the way housing is approached in Aguascalientes.
