Humble Connections

Tasked to recreate Toyo Ito’s U-House in Tokyo, multiple methods of drawing were used to revise the lost structure. Most drawings were made to represent a link between exterior and interior.

A final animation showcases how the U-House could be interpreted alongside  London based 6A Architect’s project, “Tree House”.  Specifically, how the exterior enviroment could provide a barrier or method of constructing around the preexisting enviroment.
