Catalogue of urban forms. Perforated urban block

1. Access to the underground car park 2. High-rise patios 3. Courtyard 4. Slopped plinth

This project is an alternative solution to the city block. It is proposed as more of a building system than as an individual building. The lattice-like set intersperses 30 built volumes and 30 empty spaces. These empty spaces are high-rise patios for neighbourhood life, open to cross views.
