boundaries for intimacy

Boundary defines relation. Socio-economic context of an existing site always requires negotiation between programs, architectural forms, and material, contextual and psychological behaviors. If a site is given, architecture should respond to its surrounding through constant negotiations of individual and collective relations. A linear program, which is derived from security checking process, adapts the building to a helix form as a result of adjusting the given site. Structural elements support the transformation of the architecture and boundaries are reconsidered to re-adjusting relations defined by physical and structural elements. This feedback loop re-defines boundaries and re-creates socio-economic relations.
