Urban vs Organic

The assignment for this project was to design an interesting and modern apartment complex, based on any concept I chose, for the town of Stabia, Italy. My concept drew heavily on the location of the project: where the town (ridged and urban) meets the sea (natural and organic). Thus the idea for the project arose, “urban versus organic.” The sea side of the building would take on an organic form. The urban side of the building would reflect this same organic form but at the same time keep the urban fabric of the city. The design utilized four different unit types. The first three were used on the upper levels and the fourth was only used on the first level.
