The following project began with an investigation of the logic behind Juniya Ishigami’s Kanagawa workshop project. In the pages that follow, his strategies are altered and applied to a speculative innovation building designed for a lot in Cambridge, MA. The goals of the project are to define the innovation building typology and to devise a system that achieves flexibility within the building.
