Doomsday Abbey: A Clockwork Life

Circulation spaces have often remained separate and residual areas where building occupants use to move from one programmatic space to another.

Instead of assigning more or better circulation for different programs, This thesis considers circulation itself as programs.

This project put the main events of a monastery abbey on an exclusive vertical circulation system according to the schedule of their daily practice.

On a Livable Elevator, a monk can travel through all the programs without moving horizontally.
