Hopscotch Density is a proposal situated in Chile, Santiago. It uniquely explores cross laminated timber (CLT) as a method of building construction. The initial studies involved non-scalar studies of lattice systems based on weaving and interlacing joinery through an organizational tool of the matching rule in combination of a hopscotch pattern.  The lattice system was tight fitted and deployed in downtown Santiago as a hyperdensity infill condition. The main components of the building complex are: Housing units, cultural center network bridges and a sculpture park.
