Expose is a COOP housing project situated in Venice, Los Angeles in California. One of the main ideas of the project is to expose the pipes. Each pipe has his own program, for instance grey is for greywater and to recycle the greywater there is plants. The design of the pipelines come from the wallpaper I design, that was inspired by a stone wall in Cusco, Peru. I wanted to create a façade that can be consider as a wall for privacy for the residents, however, it is composed of pipes.
In Venice, there will be an issue of sea level rising, where Venice will be covered by the ocean. Therefore, the building is raised. Meanwhile, the space is a multi-function plaza where the programs are flexible. It can be a gallery, a market or an open space for children to play.
