_Play is a design assignment series that questions the interactions of architecture, through a simultaneous act of play as a design strategy.

Featured Project Description:

Mh20 is an advantageous way of approaching modular construction as it thinks of the building process with practicality and glamour. The project aims to allow occupants maximize the possibilities of their unique space with a panelized system that can be built by anyone. The notion of mass-production starts to evoke a resurgence of the assembly line similar to those of the automobile industry. Mh20 has the ability to contextualize and scale itself in any environment in the world.
