Core In Shell
Design/Build Studio, Spring 2022
This Design/Build Studio focused on healthcare architecture and the concept of Aging in Place. Core in Shell, the result of a 3-person team, utilizes a prefabricated utility pod (the Core) inside an existing Accessory Dwelling Unit (the Shell). As a result, "Aging in Place" became "Equity in Aging".
A 4'x4', to-scale prototype was built in the studio to showcase the innovative features of the design.
Team Members include Mikel Cardiel, Daniel Mora, and Jennifer Jett.
