Friday, October 18th, 2013

Article source: Q4 Architects

CORE recently won first prize in the AIA Designing Recovery design competition for the Joplin, Missouri site.

Designed by Q4 Architects, CORE in Joplin, MO is designed to address the local vernacular by combining two single-cell homes: a centrally located \”Safe House\” acts as the hearth and divides a \”Perimeter House\”. The Safe House contains all of the functions of ‘home’ that are necessary for a family to recover quickly from disaster and live for an extended period of time until rebuilding is possible.

In one corner of this great space, we lay out the main entrance to the tower block.

At the corner of the floor plan there is a triangle. The space is black but full of life, veined with colour.

One side of the triangle marks the border, the point of control. Another, annexed to it, offers an unusual view, slightly raised above the rest.
