LINEAR BLOCK ARCHETYPE

Design Team: Jaime Correa

An exploration on the redensification of American suburbia and on the benefits of public space. The project challenges the American ideal of a block composed of peripheral lots by replacing it with a grid system of linear buildings and public passageways. The disciplined distribution of a linear system of townhouse archetypal buildings generates three public spaces: a bar-b-cue grassed area with a loggia and a colossal oven tower, a tree-shaded square, and a tiled plaza. The materials of the buildings define their basic form and deliver a base for the selection of its elementary colors. The block yields 35 dwelling units to the acre and delivers housing for 350-400 people
