A HIDDEN GEM
After centuries of dependence on the internet, a dictator D banned the use of the internet amongst all factions of the community in order to protect himself from any possible threat or rebellion. By oppressing his people and cutting them off from the outside world, D thought he would not be overthrown. The only way to way to share ideas and thoughts concerns was to get together physically! Although privacy remains an important factor in the proposed communal living, places for social gathering and discussions are at the heart of the project. Shared and communal spaces will be smuggled inside a sturdy and monolithic urban block while others will serve as camouflage gathering spaces on the ground floor.
