Designing in section was the main objective of the verticality study, which also dealt with designing between existing buildings, so party walls had to be fully integrated into the design.

As my design developed through study models and section diagrams, I played with ideas of vantage and manipulated my planar and volumetric systems to create a building that appears massive from one end, but reveals its permeability in layers, with each layer bringing a new understanding of how the spaces work.
