Of Utopias

Ana, Paige, Vanessa Phalanstery

Our interpretation of the phalanstery has two wings, one that contains the ballroom and dining rooms for the first class and another with apartments and dining spaces for the third class. Workshops are attached to the right wing. The center structure of the phalanstery contains most of the common spaces, such as the library, study, observatory, meeting rooms, and pigeon coop. Both wings are structured around central courtyards that would be covered in the winter and open to the outside in the summer. These courtyards blur the lines between indoor and outdoor space, bringing pleasure and beauty to both.
