Upset Hierarchies

This series of images uses plans and sections of iconic architectural projects to disrupt architectural hierarchies in an experimental search for a more egalitarian, cosmopolitan architecture. Through decentralizing, unbalancing, and reorienting architecture, this project hopes to suggest that a new and complex architecture might be more suited to promoting political ambitions like diversity and equality.

This research and experimentation was completed as a precursor to the YMCA project.
