Derived from an exploration of the relationship between a dashed and a continuous line, a massing block was developed as the basis for morphological transformations into three building typologies. A glitch-like effect resulted amongst the three scales as skinny towers dissolved into larger massing. Through the stratified forms at multiple scales, a network of housing units and circulation is created to allow breaks and continuities in the overall formal and spatial design.
