Urban Block Collection.

Pre-qualification for a closed competition for the design of an architectural language for a collection of urban blocks

Brusnika has developed a system of standardisation and customisation of urban blocks. This consists of a large number of block volumes that can be used depending on different contexts (the collection). The architecture (facades and detailed massing) of this collection is the design task of this competition. The architectural language is a toolbox with which all modifications of the building volumes can be designed.
