An Architecture of Independence
A monumental institution for living, can an architectural language represent someones phase of their life? “An Architecture for Independence” is a place to stay for young adults that are moving out from their parents house yet don’t have the finances to move into full accommodation immediately, a scenario many students and young professionals encounter when “leaving the nest.” This building addresses that niche age range and is a socially conscious solution, as well as a suggestion of connecting independent living and monumentality as an architectural style.
