Can hyper-density engender a stronger sense of community?
The project challenges the shear mass of the towers which form disengaging urban walls. Division along three horizontal axes corresponds to the varied heights of the surrounding buildings.

The public green gardens break the mass into smaller volumes, mimicking the optical illusion of "urban stacking" created by the steep topography. 

Engaging the hyper-density of zoning, to replace housing standardization with community driven development
