The Anisotropic Grid
A speculative housing project exploring the interrelation of the labour and domestic worlds from the micro scale of the home, to the macro of the city.
Today the digital world gives everyone access to a vast network of resources and connectivity. New formations of labour are arising, operating as a ‘gig economy’. This has led to a blurring of the labour and domesticity from home to city. Reordering domestic and labour activities into a spectrum from social to private, a greater flexibility of living and working can coexist. Inhabited walls scale up to form populated blocks punctuated by a series of public and private spaces. Separation between the dwellings and free labour program is formed by the mass sitting perpendicular creating a series of hierarchical courtyards.
