Domestic Sections

Offering prototype conditions for temporary and emergency shelter, Domestic Sections conjoins the thematic of storage and mobility endemic to American culture with the language of “flexibility” often used to describe the spatial conditions of the contemporary sub-urban home. Anchored to trailers that provide a movable support base, units are structured by an armature of parallel walls that enframe spaces of storage, service, passage, and study. Sections through the armature also reveal the existence of individual storage elements / dividers that track between the armature and open interior space. Positioned by the inhabitant, these units unfold to further define interior sites based on the actions of the individual. As freestanding movable stations, they become active agents in the negotiation
of public and private territories within the interior realm.
