In this studio, the city of Savannah was used as precedence for understanding an expansive ideal of living. This study of Savannah focused on the city╩╝s complex plan and its housing typologies. The semester is divided into three projects: The first project involved the diagramming and analysis of the urbanism and housing typologies in the city of Savannah, Georgia. The second project was the design of a carriage house in Savannah. The third project was artist housing in Miami, Florida. Throughout the semester, this studio was concerned with the organizations and studied adjacencies of living. The concept of living and the providing of its meaningful shelter were explored as a seamless event that includes many scales: the scale of the city to the scale of furniture.
