The traditional architectural vernacular calls for building typologies that sprout from the ground plane, obliterating the site on which they reside. What if, rather than raising a building above the site, we raise the site above the building? 
 By shifting the ground plane vertically, this project not only fulfills its programmatic requirements as a performance space, it also simultaneously creates a public green space that adds value to the community in which it resides.
 This structure is comprised of adaptable components, taking advantage of prefabricated units that can change shape to adapt to a high level of geometrical possibilities. Utilizing hinged connections within the module’s interior joints makes the formation of complex three-dimensional surfaces possible. Surface conditions depend on the number and location of hinge engagements.

 Club Techtonic pushes the possibilities of contemporary architecture by minimizing on site construction, utilizing pre-fabrication, and increasing environmental sustainability.
