The new Transit-Oriented development will create an open feeling that invites pedestrian users not only from the River North District, but surrounding areas as well. This structure helps to erase the boundaries we normally put between all of these functions found on the site. It permeates through them to bond all the features within the development and out in the community.

The two residential towers on the west side of the site will provide housing for multiple income levels. This housing is designed to attract the growing demographic of independent and youthful people in the area by providing a mix of both studio and loft style apartments.

The plaza creates a large pedestrian and community focus within the site. This walkable area will generate the growth of foot traffic and help to foster the idea of a pedestrian friendly development that will hopefully extend beyond just our site.

The open air farmers market helps to support sustainable concepts, create a sense of community that can be experienced by more than just the immediate neighborhood, and provide a center for the community to gather and operate special events and meetings.

integration and packaging design. [team + analog + trophy contest material Midwest region

foundation, progression and materialization 1 goal

Foundation, progression, and materialization are the three elements that tie the central states region and design. At the foundation, there is the concept, the beginning of a legacy. It starts small, but springs up with determination. As it develops, it fans out and becomes more diverse, lending strength and shape to the region and inspiration in design. This sculpture represents the central states region as it grows and finds definition. The trophy lets each year’s design team add to the legacy of the region. As the progression of design can be predicted, so to can the form of the sculpture, but it is not until the end when it is completely materialized that it is fully seen. As the pieces are added, the legacy of the region is shown in the simplicity and strength of the materials.

2 the case

the trophy is packaged in a wooden case. The case opens on the front side as seen in the diagram to the right. Dimensions: 8 in x 11 in x 18 in. The case will be used to transfer the trophy to the annual winner

3 packaging

An addition to protecting the trophy during transportation, the case is used to store the ribs. These ribs are magnatized on a sliding component within the traveling case. There are two sliding components that hold five ribs each. Each rib will be presented to the annual winner and inserted into the trophy.

4 plaques

The back side of the traveling case door will hold the individual plaques of the trophy. These plaques will be presented along with the ribs. The plaque will then be engraved with the winners names and the annual winner will take their slot.
