Figural motion analysis served as the foundation for the design of an inhabitable unit for one person - a changing room. Seemingly open ended in its definition, the room was anticipated to house the specific process of getting dressed which generated the students’ initial figural drawings.
The changing room was understood as a dynamic structure; one whose design and construction transformed in response to its intended use. As such, the studio was asked to construct a kinetic model which moved in accordance with the human body; responding to and activated by the motion it was facilitating.
