ARC201 Architectural Design: Environment, Fall 2019

 

originally by Adalberto Libera, 1937 in Capri, Italy

Pairs of students were assigned to perform a case study on notable houses in the architecture community. Through research, documentation, and diagrams, create a scale model of the building on its site that showcases the diagrammatic concepts of the project.

This case study of Casa Malaparte utilizes stained, wooden blocks to exhibit the concepts of public versus private, as well as emphasize the floating rooftop of the house. The diagrammatic blocks fit inside of a casted plaster model, which highlights the unique, extraordinary site that Casa Malaparte inhabits.
