The studio will emphasize critical thinking on basic architectural issues through the design proposal of a group of three houses and three workspaces (painting, writing, and music composing) for three very different families that will be sharing a single undivided lot in the east side of the city of Buffalo. 

“Everything is in the value, the efficiency and the integrity of the cell. In the matter of human habitat: urbanism (cities and country), streets, houses, and dwellings, the cell rules.”

Le Corbusier, 1956
