The studio was a continuation of the experimental structural high rise studio. The studio’s objective was to revisit structure as the main methodological design tool to explore the spatial potentials that lie within the relation of structure and program. Students started their projects with basic structural principles such as shear walls, arches, etc. and transformed them through a series of loading experiments. The principle was then aggregated to a site less tower of 200m as a final prototype.
