David Verbeek: “Built in a Day”

Graduate student David Verbeek created the video “Built in a Day” for ARC3016 — a Master of Architecture thesis prep course taught by Professor John Shnier in the winter of 2016.

David writes:

“Built in a Day investigates territories of hypergrowth through drawing. The challenge of accommodating millions in rapidly urbanizing environments has seen the rise of the vertical city – often, an environment of terrible beauty. By questioning the role of the earth as a datum, this thesis explores the disruption of the high rise typology central to the megacity, creating narratives of horizontality based on a speculative fiction.”
