The Yard and Spatial Microclimates…

Part of my hypothesis is that the ‘yard’ typology is ‘flexible’ – but not necessarily ‘multipurpose’. By providing a wide variety of architecturally specific ‘places’, many activities can find a home that suits them at a particular time. I like the idea that this links to ‘temporal’ land use as I was exploring in our early group work (Lammas). It links to ecology and biodiversity (ask me about bats…), for which ‘economics’ and ‘social diversity’ can be substituted. It is also essentially about ‘interface’…how those spaces ‘breathe’ with the Yard itself – the coming and going of material, energy and people.
