Title: Temporary Populations: An Architecture of the Interstitial
Author: Dewane, Rachel Anne
Advisor: Pope, Albert
Degree: Master of Architecture thesis
Abstract: One unique aspect of the extended stay hotel typology is that as demographics of temporary populations within this dwelling type shift, relationships must constantly be renegotiated. In order to best respond to the demands of this spatial and temporal uncertainty, this project proposes new strategies for how contingent populations and their accompanying programmatic temporalities can cohabitate on the same site. The focus of this research is to leverage the latent potentials of the interstitial space between bodies in an architectural assemblage in order to activate, animate, and register relationships within a collective program. ii
