Graduate student housing for VPI & SU: a design proposal
Successful architecture responds to user function on one level and its environment on another. A design for graduate student housing that operates on both levels is shown.
The potential of curved building masses is explored. The structure for housing is the structure for parking, and the whole complex defines and separates vehicular and pedestrian circulation.
Existing features of the site are employed and enhanced to create a tie between the old and new.
The spaces are as important as the space makers.
