Park Tower Residence / Housing

Park Tower Residence
Park Tower Residence

The Park Tower Residence is proposed as a solution to deal with both the increase in population and car ownership. Rather than irresponsibly discouraging the necessity and desire for car ownership, my proposal fully embraces it. The building's primary constraint is the accommodation of the automobile, and then evolves to house its owners. The structure is initially derived from a spiral helix ramp, the construction typology of a typical parking structure, known for its simplicity and economy. Along the ramp surface, every unit is provided with one parking space, the dimensions of which define the footprint of the unit extruded below.
