Architecture for Production and Reproduction

Architecture for Production and Reproduction
Generic office space should be adapted to suit an even more flexible typology that easily moves between living, working and leisure.
File under

Separating our identities and social behaviour simply between living and working has become somewhat dated. In the age of 24hr digital media consumption the traditional division between office and home has transformed towards digital and physical.

Through a critique of the conventional Typical Plan, this project explores the possibility that the generic office space be adapted to suit an even more flexible typology that easily moves between living, working and leisure. Because of the shift in mode of production towards networked individuals and work becoming more inseparable from our life in general, the proposed Ideal Plan perforates the continuous plane of the Typical Plan, tearing open areas for living and sinking into it pockets for privacy. The project becomes a manifestation of the position of creative labour in our society and proposes a new type of housing for creative workers, ironically, in the form of a factory.
