As society perpetually evolves, retention of selected pre-existent building fragments (structure and inhabitation, form and use) provides necessary continuity to affirm cultural and individual identity. Within this framework of continuity, radical transformation may occur, in line with the evolution of society. This project examines the necessity for such metamorphoses, working within an existing hotel building in the Boston Back Bay to 5 design guest residences for visiting M.IT. faculty.
