Semester 5 work at NYIT, Computer (CAD) designed

Design a Student Activity Center
My concept revolves around books: different sizes, positions, open, closed, etc. An open book allows me to make several large cuts through the building, creating a very clear circulation, as well as many chances to let light into the building. These main cuts also point towards key views around my building: the elevated garden, the church, and down 61st street. One such cut is so large that it allows for a green reference: a garden in the middle of the building. In the final, the model looks like a “city within a city,” with all the cuts, just the scale holds the project from being a city. (all images)
