Parti Model

Didden Village is well known for the rooftop houses that were added to its pre-existing building (O’Grady). To achieve the parti concept, I retreated back to the design process of the rooftop. As MVRDV used foam to create preliminary models, I wanted to emphasize the malleability of the rooftop houses by highlighting their adaptability of being added on as an “after thought” (Colonnese). Thus, I considered foam as the material for the rooftop. By exploring EPS foam, sponges as well as dry foam, I realized dry foam was a moldable material, embodying the adaptability of the rooftop houses. The base building is acrylic glass to contrast the publicity and stability of the rooftop.
