Connecting our built and unbuilt worlds




In this video I use renderings of an unbuilt project in California designed by Edward Ogosta Architecture to show how using place to inspire architecture is worth getting right.

At a basic level, our homes are little more than pragmatic containers for our everyday lives, charged with holding the assortment of objects that define who we are and the specifics of how we interact with the world. This is because home design often prioritizes functional requirements above all else.

But what if your home’s design was derived from the unique place where you live rather than simply rational solutions to functional necessities? What if the places you retired to for relaxation, the living spaces, even the bathrooms, were arranged according to a larger order?

    You need to create some more videos like this, I loved this one! The way you can see how all the features link and how you can use certain things in different houses!
