School of Design
Critic: Mark Foster Gage
The unit of a tree canopy is a leaf. The unit of a flock of birds is a single bird, the unit of a sandcastle is a grain of sand, what is the unit of an architecture school? Using a simple frame 5’ x 5’ x 12’ - suited to the dimension of a students desk, the turning radius of a wheelchair, the width of a walkway – The UPenn School of Design is composed of single units that when aggregated, create a multitude of diverse learning environments.
