GRATIOT LIBRARY

Eastern Market is vital spot in the Southestern downtown Detroit area. These markets and business allow vendors to sell produce, meats, fish and other goods, like clothing and jewlery. This development has helped Detroit nourish into the thriving city it is today and is pushing Detroit towrd a brighter future. This idea for a 21st century library will be open year round and will accomadate the needs of the community and allow for the connections to the Eastern Market.


Our site is located in an empty lot inbetween the Gratiot Meat Market and a hardware store. The Gratiot Meat although physically seperate from the sheds brings in a lot of business that is crucial to the Eastern Market Development. To enhance that connection with the sheds and the meat market our design for the library were to re-establish that connection with the other half of the eastern market located over the freeway.


Murals painted by local artists, contracted by the Eastern Market Corporationocated. These are located on the side of the buildings on the site. There are also murals throughout the whole Eastern Market. This library has outdoor/open area that allow for new murals to be painted.


Some of the key features for this modern 21st century library includes an outdoor park area underneath the second floor. Almost the whole first floor is an outdoor library space with bookshelves and modular seating. The topography has also been altered to allow apatheather like seating for performances and other events. A small portion of the first floor is inclosed with modular seating for interior reading spaces.


The second floor is the more public area with computer stations and also exterior seating to allow a visual connection with the first floor. There are skylights that allow light to travel as far as the first floor.

The third floor is the more private area of the library with most of the stacks and offices being located on this level. No exterior spaces in the third floor but have sklights which allow for more light to come through.


Circulation -The red highlights the circulation of pedestian throughout the site and through Gratiot Meat Market as being the main connection point with the Eastern Market Sheds.

Engagment -The blue highlights the circulation of pedestian throughout the site with the proposed library as being the main connection point with the Eastern Market Sheds and the commercial businesses on Gratiot Ave.


02

SKILLMAN LIBRARY

The Skillman Library, located in downtown Detroit, is a branch of the Detroit Public Library. We analyzed the site and created a character. Then utilizing a visual representaion created a Narrative and designed a space for that specific person. Here we follow the life of an old African American man. The space designed for him is an outdoor park area for him to sit and tell his stories to young kids. It can also act as park and meeting space for the community.


03

ELMWOOD PARK LIBRARY

The Elmwood Park branch library is located on Detroit East side. This library is on a strip mall with a residential apartment complex located in the back. Taking into account the surrounding commercial area and apartment, I decided to renovate the middle plaza, makeing it into a modular park submerged 4’ into the ground. This would allow for more seating and also engagment with the residents and library users. This new park space would alow for events and popup spaces.


04

WALDORF EXTENSION The Waldorf School in Detroit is an elementary school with a unorthodox way of teaching. This new extension is moved closer to the sidewalk to better engage and welcome the community. The extension is then conencted with two exterior tunnels with extruding windows to provide a space within the tunnel to angage the park aswell. The multi-use space is then held up with structural fins that allow for isolated views of the street.


05

KNEEDING INSTITUTE

The Kneeding Cultural institute is a cooking school looking to engage the community in the Windsor area of Ontario, Canada. This three level institute offers an open kitchen on the bottom, with the culinary school on the second level and residential apartments on the third floor.


The overall design was based on an idea of pushing and pulling different elements to create a variety of long overhangs. The building is open visually to the pubic, allowing the community to engage and view the spectacle inside.Landscaping also played an important role in creating spaces around the buiding as well as activating the corridor connecting the alley way to the sidewalk.


A Horticulture Graduate school for the Liberty Hill site in Cincinnati, Ohio will engage the community and provide learning for local residence, perusing this career. Our biggest challenge is designing over a steep hill and figuring out a way to connect the bottom with the top. Located in a mostly residential area, with a major intersection located at the bottom of the hill and freeways just east of the site. We must keep the circulation going through the hill to allow people to get to their houses and up the hill. This institute engages the community by having a community space where they can host city council meetings as well as other public events. There is also a vertical garden greenhouse open to the public, where the community can get involved with the horticulture school.

06

STITCH INSTITUTE


The school is located on the ground floor, while the residential area is located on the second floor. Both buildings cross on top of each other, this intersection allows for an elevator that goes in the middle of both buildings. One of the main themes where the idea of isolated framed views which allow for different views of downtown Cincinnati. The outdoor area also allows for a park and steps to get to the top of the hill.

INFOBOX PROJECT

With the upcoming development of the Eastern Market to expand and renovate the last three sheds and I-375, we designed a space or InfoBox that would house that development idea and plan. This space is meant to be seen as a space where the community and pedestrians can come to learn more about the upcoming plan for the Eastern Market.


The InfoBox I proposed would be located over I-375 where the current pedestrian bridge is located. This would redesign the pedestrian bridge to enhance the vital connection between the Gratiot Meat Matket and Eastern Mrket Sheds. This would also allow for popup spaces for vendors on the main and lower level of the bridge. The InfoBox is elevated to allow the view of the entire Eastern Market and downtown Detroit.

RHYTHM

Based on a two-dimensional plan drawing communicating the idea of rhythm that was designed using basic geometric shapes, we explored different iterations of the drawing into a three-dimensional interpretation using model making material. This project took many iterations and phases before it reached the final product.


09

BALANCE

Playing with the idea of mass and void, we reconstructed three solid cubes by extracting pieces and inserting those same piece them back anywhere and in any form on the cube. Each cube had to be either symmetrical, asymmetrical or both. Once each iteration was complete one cube was chosen. Experimenting with point, line and plane, the cube was reconstructed into its final iteration from the mass we had reconstructed to a cube with only points, lines and planes.
