Individual project

The LCC is the EPFL's construction and conservation laboratory, headed by Professor Luca Ortelli. This is one of four third-year project studios to be choosen.
This year's topic was the 20th century collective housing around the Dutch architect J.-J.-P. Oud. We have started with an analysis of Rotterdam and then the main work asked for the implantation of 500 housing units on the Vroesenpark and its western surroundings. Google Map.
We have also designed optical box models of remarkable dwellings.

This projects preserves the park and the private garden area in the northwest. High buildings are raised in front of this complex, to the south. They overlook a promenade that connects the park to the east to the riverside to the west. The project extends southwards through a series of duplexes with gardens. In their extension, studios without gardens are built and the open space is then used for public facilities with varying programmes. Finally, a second typology of building closes these complexes to the south and a high housing residential unit to the west, overlooking a square.
