About Me

Bryan Premont is a recent graduate of the MArch program at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. This blog was meant to be a digital sketchbook and collection device for the development of a thesis. The thesis was well received, with major criticisms focused on issues related to the greater urban scale of the collectives and the interaction between different types of collectives that may form.

Currently, Bryan lives in Boston, working as a research and teaching assistant for Prof. Weldon Pries while searching for full-time employment as en entry level designer. He has kept busy serving as a guest critic at Wentworth and Northeastern, and a substitute professor at Wentworth, while utilizing a newfound free-time to read, research, and explore his interests in the fields of architecture, urban design, and philosophy. His passion for practicing and teaching architecture is only matched by his love of nature and the outdoors.

    hello bryan you have done a wonderful project..congratulations..but tell me e few things..how did study of (foreign born inhabitants and first floor inhabitants affected) helped you for taking design decisions. secondly, are you suggesting totally new building for new inhabitants?? if yes.then what would be the foundation detail of that building and how far these buildings resist against permanent standing water???

    • Thank you for the kind words. The study of foreign born inhabitants is meant to provide an understanding of mobility within the city. In the event of sudden climatic events, it is more difficult for foreign born inhabitants to evacuate the city. Those born nationally more likely have local connections that could provide a destination in an evacuation. The study of first floor inhabitants studies the lost of the first floor level as a result of sea level rise and the penetration of water into the built environment. The proportion suggests the amount of space lost for inhabitation and suggested looking at the re-appropriation of those inhabitants.

      The buildings are not new buildings, they are a transformation of existing structures. The study was focused on the typology of row houses within Boston, but because the typology is proliferated throughout both US and international cities, the thesis is more far-reaching than that of studying the transformation of only a single unique building.
