/// unmarked



I wonder....
If it is illegal to drive without a tag,
how legal could it be riding a bus that doesn't have one?
and not say dangerous.

/// a different approach



The Kn residence is a house in the suburbs of Kanagawa, Japan made by kochi architect's studio. The house presents a different approach of a typical suburban model house. I'm not convinced about the almost zero setback to the site negating the relationship between dwelling and street, but the house interior spacial arrangement engages the connection between garden + terrace + living spaces. The volume is a basic not perfect square box with a cut out void that brings in light, posing as a quasi oversized window, illuminating the interior gardens and interior spaces.

/// the courtyard bloc


A courtyard is a space surrounded by walls or buildings housed within a complex or building, forming an interior patio that brings air and light, relates public and private spaces, binding the interior with the exterior.

Through out history the courtyard type have been used by many cultures. It has been used for gardening, working, playing, cooking, but not exclusively to service duties, the basic pattern of a courtyard was also used on temples, palaces and governmental buildings.

In China, the Siheyuan, the traditional Beijing quadrangle consisted of four residential houses or buildings arranged around a square. It is said that the pattern for the Siheyuan is the basic model for the courtyard type.

Today the courtyard bloc is a good way of responding to the suburb needs it provides density, privacy and safe areas for neighbors to interact. The modern courtyard is not a completely private space, is a semi-public space shared between the dwellers of a small community.
