En-[coded]-Fields - a parametric design exercise for young architects, a code to articulate the social functions inside the urban context.
Timisoara is a typical radial grid city, where the center gathers all the citizens for social events. Therefor we decided to obtain a higher level of articulation and continuity within the urban field through parametric processes such as emphasis, representation, variaion and ralationships.
These processes generate an urban net like mass and topology systems, navigation and guidance systems, typology and structural systems. We followed the concept of a "continuous field" with hierarchical connected parts that are working together at urban scale. The density, the plot, the circulation and the height analysis were evaluated and we analyzed the way they influence each other.
