Dreaming and Perceiving: An Approach to Dwelling in the City
More InformationShow full item record
This thesis aims to answer the question; how can we slow down our perception of city living to create an appropriate setting that reinterprets aspects of community living into an urban setting? The typology is a mixed use apartment and condominium complex in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The issue associated with city dwelling is that it has become more and more of an efficient infrastructure and lacks the cultural aspects and meaningful spaces that are necessary for meaningful forms of dwelling. By creating a sense of community and neighborhood within the city, those who live and work there will be able to live in a way that promotes balance and health within ambiguous spaces that allow us to remember, imagine and daydream.
