Not Your Neighbors


The project is an imagined urban pattern motivated by a set of geometric relationships between two houses. When propagated, the geometric relationship gives rise to two extremes that are contained within the same whole: the regularized and the aberrant conditions. 

The aberrant condition relies on the same aggregational logic as the generic condition, determined by the hexagonal lot boundaries, yet densifies and folds the lots on themselves as it executes the procedure. The result is an urban fabric where two communities bound to seemingly opposing organizational principles are intertwined. 

One wonders, do lot line geometries and urban aggregation principles have political dispositions that would manifest themselves, were this urban pattern to be realized?
