CONTAINMENT & FINDING COMMONALITIES
by Lamisah Abdal
Containment aims to look into the effects Covid-19 has had on students and study. The project explores how families could adapt to the traditional terrace house to make learning from home easier and more convenient. The world pandemic has had a direct effect on students, to this day, consequently having an effect on study, social life and family life. Finding Commonalities intends to create a domestic space for a household that would not traditionally live under the same roof. Study of Hikikomories and Drag Queens, individuals who are faced with many social pressures from families and the environment, pushed me to develop a project for both occupants to co-live and co-habitat. To do this, I explored different thresholds such as the relationship between private and public spaces.
