Academic Level:

In seeking an atmosphere of peace and protection in our return to campus, we shift our learning environment outside into the open areas around the School of Architecture. Koza is a single-student studio in which adjustable layers allow the student to decide their level of protection. A slatted wood outer shell provides shade and privacy, a layer of plexiglass allows for visibility and a layer of net provides both visual and audible connection to students and professors. The individual Koza lifts up to join others as a family of units hovering above the ground plane.
