Shown is a pre-design presentation of my architecture thesis project. It shows the relationship of the concept to a draft strategy on what might be the outcome and final project due at the end of the year. Design schemes are still rough ideas and have many rooms for improvement throughout the semester.

    1. 1. CIVIC MUTATIONS
    2. 2. CIVIC MUTATIONS
    3. 3. Civic Mutations is an investigation of the integration between civic and living spaces based on the fragmentation and porosity of modern telecommunication systems. The thesis will explore existing civic spaces and its relationship to our living environment based on the eect and patterns of social network and interaction within the virtual realm, resulting in the idea of an open architecture. What justifies public and private spaces in a society where information can be easily accessible with mapping and tracking technologies? Or does a segregation between public and private spaces even matter? These questions will serve as a basis to create a space that is adaptable by series of events – a space that reacts and interacts with the users' patterns. This is a proposal for an architectural platform that is constantly active and an environment that serves both the actor and the spectator.
