Title: By You For You
Author: Frey, Brittney
Abstract: By You For You examines how much stimulus is necessary for a space to meet our needs. The typology is a multi-family dwelling. The theoretical premise/unifying idea states that designing merely for basic human needs allows for use that is more adaptable. Within the given parameters, the individuals are responsible for the uniqueness of the space. The project justification is that architecture demands strict codes to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of its occupants. However, flexibility of space is also important to society because individuals respond better to different environments. By designing just the basics, buildings remain progressive instead of a product of the times. The final design offers 18 residential units, underground parking for 22 vehicles, and a rooftop garden terrace at a total of 43,200 square feet. At just around 100,000 residents and growing, Rochester, MN, provides many amenities and activities to locals and smalltown commuters. There is a need for more housing because of the dynamic demographics. The Mayo Clinic also brings in student residents needing temporary and potential long-term housing. Using the concurrent transformative strategy, I will analyze and interpret both historical and present conditions relating to adaptive spaces. From there, I will also research related topics including green design, health, and wellbeing in relation to building form and function and building materials. Data will be collected both quantitatively and qualitatively through a variety of means. The quantitative data will include both statistical and scientific data gathered mainly through archival searches. The qualitative data will be gathered from direct observation and analysis, local surveys, archival searches, and interviews.
