Apartment 131 – In The Beginning…

September 17, 2008

Hello World! We are really excited to share with you an interactive project we have initiated in the Fulton Market District of Chicago. We’ve take 3 architecture students and asked them to live in a warehouse loft for 9 months. The catch? The loft is completely open, free of partition walls and the students are only allowed to create their personal space out of found materials.

The goal of the project is to study a new form of living. A lifestyle where the users generate their own spaces using what they have and what they can find. How will they divide the space amongst themselves? How will their individual spaces change over time as they get lived in and conditions change? How do they address privacy? What materials do they find and build with? How do they use waste materials in new ways

We invite you to join us on this adventure and follow along as we take a look at each resident, their building materials, and how their user generated spaces live and adapt.
