In Search of Slowness : a study slowness in relation to the built environment Jones, Robin Howard


This graduate project explores how the convergence between living architecture and the concept of slowness can lead to greater social connection within the affected communities. A structured network of slow public spaces is key for cities to effectively address the complex conditions that arise within an increasingly fast culture. In order to keep up with rising density cities need to increase the capacity of these public spaces. The primary methodology is the study of typological connections at multiple scales, materiality and architectural details through scholarly research and investigative analysis.
