APPROACH

This thesis project is a multi-housing project set in a world where people cannot see. 

1.  Removing a key sense dramatically alters how people percieve and interact with  the world - and in turn their umwelt

2. It critiques normative design by redefining the human ‘normal’ to explore how much our existing built environment is already an adaptation to the world. 

3. Recognizing the idea of multitude acknolwedges the differences between individuals while still allowing for community and togetherness.
