Designing a present and a future

OUTgrow Zone envisions a present and a future, where it challenges the notion of edges superimposed by architectural expressions that have been embedded (and intend to be reinvented by the proposal of Greenway) into the site’s context by integrating public housing and public street realm together.

The nodes that are created (for evxample the Amenities Zone and the Outdoor Plaza) create opportunity to foster and build a sense of community. Sometimes spreading these necessary facilities across a campus sometimes can result in a disparate experience. Also, the consideration for Co-Living spaces breaks the trajectory for homogeneous living, and creates opportunity for bonding and understanding across generations, able bodies and disabled/differently abled bodies. Sharing spaces for common uses no matter the walk of life seems like a productive way forward in community living.

Beautiful foundational concept! Love it!

The architect employed a cost effective form, but that's it! The presentation is short of important aspects of the idea, as if not finished. No clear decisions (and basis of decisions) for important parts like the structure concept, construction methodology, and at least an idea of the sustainability solutions. The easy form, though, allows for easy future expansion and growth.

Interesting but overly complex layout which oddly creates a split or divide within the development; the plan seems less attractive in the visualisation

Love the idea of the garden sharing between neighbors and community members. The center outgrow area adds togetherness for the community and the studios for singles is great.
