Monastic Modules
Instructor/  Jackilin Hah Bloom

The project an exercise in spatial compactness, given a theoretical plot of flat land, constrained at 9’ wide 18’ in length and 12’ in height. The idea of small space had immediate parallels to the monastic cell; dually in the spatial intimacy and programing with minimal possessions; a desk, a lounge, a bed and a painting. The project sought to organize these spaces cyclically according to the light patterns of a routine. The inhabitant waking up as the dwelling bowed in the morning to the rising sun, working for a period at the desk, resting intermediately, but always encouraged a connection outside of itself.
