Circulation Model

Toyo Ito designed the White U House for his sister, whom requested a home where her and her daughters could enjoy close contact with soil and plants. With a large central courtyard fulfilling the wishes of the family, I analyzed the overall circulation to be hectic and chaotic! Therefor, the final model idea was developed by analyzing the foot traffic within the space. Public and private areas established the different volumes of chaos within the circulation. The rounded, more organic, section of the home is where the most circulation happens: the public space of the build — hence my rational for developing a circular shaped model. And lastly, the organic entanglements in the model resemble the unpredictable and chaotic movements during a time where the public space is used the most.
