Quiet Gravitas: Re-animating Drifters through Void Pedagogy

A playful and empathetic approach to the live/work unit, Quiet Gravitas, renews communal typologies. The proposed architectural ecology explores rituals and place through a careful study of how materials and users function within a space. The design is further elevated by a collection of objects serving as social experiments in social interaction and human empathy as a means of redefining homeless typologies  within Tokyo, Japan.

The proposed design employs a process of integration, connection and empathy in order to reanimate the homeless populace in Japan in a more positive light. Redefined as drifters, this project seeks to reconnect underserved communities with the urban landscape by referencing nomadic traditions
