Little Megastructure


"Little Megastructure" for Greg Lynn's Research Studio

Work by Yiman Yiman (MArch '23)

Completed for Greg Lynn's "Explicit Design with a Personal Mission & Vision" Research Studio, examining mixed-use housing for Ontario, California. A core element of their prompt: to frame their research projects within both a MISSION and a VISION statement.

To configure an inclusive community of aggregated spatial prototypes that celebrates social connection and belonging while supporting individuality.

Modularized Elements
The prototypical forms can be combined and composed in a variety of ways to create a wide range of spaces.

Gathering spaces
Clusters of parks, plazas, courtyards and atriums in between modules throughout the megastructure that foster a sense of community and belonging.

Little Megastructure
With a clear hierarchy of spaces that are designed for different purposes and activities, having all the components of a city creates a sense of urbanism.
