In this project we will be exploring strategies that determine the general massing of the housing elements (terraces, blocks, towers, slabs, clusters, etc.). However, as we design our focus should be on the open space. This includes the streets, alleys, paths and such that determine the entry points and movement patterns across the site. This establishes one of the key aspects of the character of the neighbourhood. Further, overall the quality of the scheme will depend on other open spaces – courtyards, greens, gardens, patios, playgrounds and so on. Taken together your approach should be to determine the negative space rather than the solids of the housing elements.
