Undoubtely, a city is more than just its buildings. Cities gather our needs, our desires; what we do, what we are and want to be. But, like giant vessles, it are its buildings and the spaces in-between which contains the city as the places that touches us and on what we stand. With this exercise as an entry to the incomprehensible challenge to construct a city we want raise a simple question: What is the city in this particular building? Here, each student was looking into a building known for its specifity creating a public through its demos of building parts. Through a series of exercises each shown work investigates the following questions: When the city is a part of our buildings, how an architect designs that what with a building forms a city? What forms of a public gathers the building, for which it is known for or was projected? What are the specific parts which form that demos and what those parts consist of? The exposed models render the city as a building through its elements of architecture: Articulating the parts of a city within a building.
