story

Architectural Thesis - Can Architecture be moral? The deeper we can look inside ourselves, the further we can move forward - Perhaps we cannot answer the question of righteousness in Architecture, but we can use architecture to exemplify good practices of human and environmental behaviors. This leads to the idea of a safe semi-transparent environment where older individuals can share their wisdom to younger generations in growth - where the elderly can assist younger teachers in taking care of young children and vice-versa, the joys of life. Hypothetically located on the waterfront of Redhook Brooklyn, New York, here are a couple of architectural solutions that can function as a Daycare center and a Nursing home. --> Click Here to See Other Architectural Scaled Projects
