About This Project

An exploration of how we can live at the edge of wilderness in the context of the growing understanding of human impacts on ecological systems, and the lingering psycho-geographic desire for a sense of solitude and aesthetic connection to the natural world.

On a fine scale, the program is a single residential unit within a small cluster of units. To reach this scale, broader concept design was undertaken at a planning scale.

The project won the Peck Prize for best graduate Thesis at Rensselaer and is the culmination of two semester of research and design.
