Fargo, ND Hotels are primarily based on a configuration of “units,” rooms and spaces, and are standard and multipliable. This principle is used not in the creation of a room unit, but as a building module. This “unit” allows organic formation of scale, rooms, and spaces.
Unit and Scale Studies
Spacial and Elevation Study
The modular system uses a pinion and clip assembly to connect into a unit. This unit is then multiplied and rotated to create strands, and multiplied once again into sheets. Upon completion of the sheets, they are rolled to create a cylindrical structure. This assembly and process allows an organic creation of space and an ever changing exterior that reacts to interior and exterior forces
