Branches of Space defining community BRANCHES_CONN ECTORS OF SPACE AND PEOPLE THE IDEA IS TO ARRANGE THE LANDSCAPE WITH BUILT FORMS AND CREATE INTERACTIVE SPACES. THE SPACES WILL BE CONNECTED BY THE PATHWAYS WHICH ARE DERIVED FROM BRANCH SHAPES. THE WHOLE COMMUNITY IS VISUALIZED AS A TREE WHICH BRANCHES ARE THE CONNECTORS OF PEOPLE AND SPACES THE PATHWAYS CAN BE DEFINED BY BUILT FORMS, COMMUNITY SPACES OR JUST TREES.

N The wind flow coming in the summer can be reduced by higher structures in north side.

S

South wind can be captured in a higher level; so lower height structures are made in south

Boys School) and west (like Rapa Plaza, Aarong) are source for traffic jam on the road for site entrance.

Easy access from the core to all apartments

SWOT ANALYSIS OF THE SITE

Threat There is a trend of mixed-use building on the roadside but that would indulge the privacy and security of the housing buildings

The area is extremely traffic congested in school hours, that would be a problem for all the residents. ENTRANCES CONNECTION BETWEEN OPEN SPACES
