LIFE BEHIND THE SCENES
Project by: CAMRYN MORTON, ERIN ZEARFOSS and CHLOE DEMARCO
Digital infiltration in the home creates a divide between people's public perception and their reality, with some even losing touch with reality due to over consumption of technology. We examined how humans begin to curate the spaces that are public to others through technological platforms and how they drastically differ from the real domestic space they live in.
Our proposed community is meant to facilitate the digital experience and curation of a location, provide opportunities for remote work, while also considering the relationship between working from home and taking care of children.
The passage pulls people in from the piazza in front of the church through a very compressed crevice lined with personal work pods that create a connection between those freely walking through the site and those working in the most private interior spaces.
Inside the massing of the building the work pods exist as nodes of isolation, free from physical interaction and encouraging digital connectedness. Around the pods is a massed infrastructure to heighten the idea of isolation and privacy of the pods from the other programs. This connecting network also becomes the circulation between floors and programs as it gets carved and inhabited to make stairs and landings.
The continuity of spaces embraces the fluidity between the different roles a person must accomplish and allows for shared experiences between different people that make up the community.
