Arunachalam lakshmanan joins us again for his second appearance on the Architect-US Portfolio Challenge with his project called M.O.C.A. Last time he submitted a project called THE VEIL, which represents a solution for covering over older infrastructure that could be renovated to provide even more utility to the community, while also beautifying the area of the city. His second submission aims to create a cultural and social space that allows for artists and citizens to interact in different venues within a large complex. Arunachalam provides us with the different iterations and shapes and structures that would lock together to form the complete building.
