A preview of zoid by LevenBetts.

The idea of, and name, “zoid” comes from an on-going geometric study in the architecture practice of LevenBetts, based on a single repeatable shape—a right trapezoid. LevenBetts has realized this shape in art installations in New York, public seating in the Miami Design District, a house in Hudson, NY, and now at Omi. Since zoid's ultimate objective is to be a holistic collective living environment, the study of the architecture is just one component of the whole. Light, the experience of the interior, products and materials are part of the piece. And since affordability will be the ultimate goal of zoid as both a shelter and as a house, the project intends to initiate discussions around socially just space and material production. In the immediate iteration of zoid, the objective is to create a shelter for an arts venue that provides for collectivity and individuality in a dwelling and provides for a basic experience of shelter that engages visually and physically with the landscape and experientially with the other pieces in the collection.
