This project focuses on designing a way of inhabiting based on a relationship between order and disorder. The design takes a planar boundary outlined by the cornice of surrounding buildings as the datum. Trapezoidal frame sequence reverses the original orientation and generates new order by hanging the structure from the datum towards the ground. A main corridor goes through the frames and organizes the programs. The interactions between the programs, the ground, and the existing buildings are further tuned.
