dc.description.abstract Architecture today tends to focus on making a single statement for a building, rather than on expressing the varied occupants of the building. When a building's image is more important than its users, this can be the correct decision. However, when the building is designed primarily for its occupants, such as with an apartment building, it does not logically fit that the building should have one single expression.This project examines the concept of creating an architectural expression of individuality within a building typology that typically has very little expression of its users. The project itself is a residential complex in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania consisting of five mixed use buildings on a full city block, but the project is concerned primarily with the concept of expressing individuality rather than on the actual buildings designed.
