ABOVE - How can one module be used in creating a field of them so that the entirety of it can change according to its needs? In the study of modules through form molds and making plastics - the characteristics of the material are tested in compression and tension - here are a few aggregates from the modules put together.

 - Hypothetically situated in Manhattan, New York, in front of the  Juliard School of Music, this HighRise is programmed as a Conservatory (a music school) for primary and secondary school. The triangulated structural steel frame is exposed and expressed in a way that looks like it's opening up in space towards the sky. The floors are cantilevered at different levels and this creates a facade where users can enjoy the view from the edge of the building, similar to climbing and descending the edges of a mountain. The study involves thinking how people move vertically within a building.
