Entry No. 01 is a house designed around the corner condition in housing typology and engages the topic of indifference through object related appropriations. The project is a result from ‘Practice Sessions 01’ workshop at Taubman College led by MOS Architects, Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample. The topic for the session was indifference and asked students to design a house and an object.
The house is designed for dry climate conditions and introduces curved walls as instances that minimize the corner. Those that are existing, overlap with others and create a new affect. An additive element of interchangeable ‘blocks’ allows the user to change the space according to his/her needs. As a default the object is located around the corners in order to diffuse their brutality. These objects begin to be indifferent agents of the architectural space, as they can be transferred from one place to another; inside or outside.
