Some of the most successful urban spaces in Tianjin are those which were never explicitly set aside for their present use; excess sidewalk becomes walk-up retail, a partitioned segment of a courtyard becomes a dwelling. Lot 6 is a proposed redevelopment that hopes to accomodate such urban â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;happeningsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; while offering a new, smarter and more ecologically sensitive overall building massing. Lot 6 is a field condition generated by an algorithm. The rules of this algorithm guide selforganization of housing units for distributed density and southern sun exposure.
