Students in this studio were asked to study the planning principles of a 1960’s “new town” that was proposed for west-central Minnesota, the Minnesota Experimental City(MXC). They were then asked to imagine a new or hybrid typology based on these principles, select a site as if the city had been built in the urban or rural settings that were proposed northwest of Alexandria, and design a building, circa 2011. This project was an exploration of movement in conjunction with the dynamic form of the site. The sequence from one threshold to another was meant to be reflective of the needs of individuals suffering from the exterior environment.
