Metamorphic Connections

The “Metamorphic Connections” project in North Corktown aims to create a dynamic community that fosters socialization, creativity, and engagement while also connecting to other neighborhoods. To achieve this goal, the project will establish a network of adaptable interaction spaces and community programs that promote engagement and socialization. The project’s “architecture metamorphosis” approach allows shared spaces to adapt to the community’s changing needs, from an urban site scale to a housing unit scale based on a 12.5′ x 12.5′ module. Additionally, the project prioritizes pedestrian-friendly streets to encourage walking and cycling, facilitating the use of shared spaces at both site and housing unit levels. The project’s kit of parts comprises the components of a community, and their interactions create shared flexible spaces at different scales.
