ARC6013 Design Resolution 3


The design is one that is multifaceted and complex. The concept of ‘pattern’ is one which covers how the city is an ordered series of arrangement and display of a particular thing. The conceptual form tries to embrace the contradictory features and qualities of the site in order to create an architectural form which is stimulating for all.
Designed for migrants, the main objective for the architectural form is to allow
people to write their own version of Je me souviens, recall memories, create a quasiautobiography to define Digbeth with their own unique configuration
formed from their own set of recollections. Therefore, the framework is made from patterns of stories. How can the architectural form created become something that is sensitive to these recollections?
