This investigation explores a formal-spatial mashup into the primitive transect. As a site-less conceptual study of collectivity joining multiple densities, the primitive carve, acting as an infrastructural landscape armature, creates mutations in co-opted vernacular typologies while simultaneously mediating public to semi-private gradients of new social relief spaces from the sub-urban periphery and its transition to an urban core.

 

The primitive transect experiments with mutations of the vernacular form against parameters like density, aggregation, and gradients of sociability, set within the programmatic foundation of housing and small-scale food production like greenhouses. It offers formal-spatial lessons as an operation in ranging density while still maintaining sociability, collectivity, and open-ness.
