dc.description.abstract THE OPEN SUPERBLOCK looks towards the unused land within the existing superblock grid as an opportunity to introduce public space into the suburban fabric. By gathering and juxtaposing a variety of programs and activities into specific sites, the Open Superblock acts in contrast to its surrounding context. Unlike the current mono-functional superblock which is bound by the grid, the proposed intervention challenges the endless infrastructural gridiron, stitching together existing blocks, and overtime inverts the initial closed superblock into a dense, yet open development. In the end, this proposed intervention combines multifamily housing, programmatic density and planned open space in order to address the public realm within the suburban fabric.
