a-project is developing the implications for vertical circulation strategies that are constructed as an involving manipulation of grid with an associated framework of the generic stair component typologies of tread, structure, balustrade and handrail. Developing a rigour and flexibility of stair operations that respond to localised manipulations and contingent implications of “grid” and the potential of “component” typologies within this grid.
a-project is developing these stair studies as an ongoing framework that suggests multiple possibilities for architectural elements. In this instance forming an evolving logic of vertical circulation, and investigating the spatial potential of diverse speeds and configurations of a straight stair run. Stair designs that evolve with the component iterations / serial deviations of structure and formal translations of simplicity or increased complexity.
