The Idea Box works by allowing local business ideas to be generated on site, and it all starts by making an appointment to pitch the idea in one of two pitch boxes. From the pitch box if allowed to go forward the idea gets sent down to the idea box, and once in the idea box it is brought to life. One of the features of the idea box is to market, advertise, and produce the product. Once the idea becomes reality it moves down again to one of three storefronts. In the storefront the idea gets to do research to what clientele base would best suite their idea. From the store front the idea would be sent to one of the vacant buildings within the city that has the highest amount of the ideal clients. This would be a way to give the business idea a solid footing to a long and prosperous future.

This projects parti was incorporating wood to an artists warehouse/studio that would mimic his work. The artist works with visually kinetic, and physically kinetic paintings and sculptures. The roof is meant to create a visually dynamic gesture that allows the program to be guided from entrance to exit by spatial arrangements. Where the peaks are the highest is the most important pieces of program, and the lowest peaks are for circulation. Every aspect of the facade treatment was carried through with the idea that light would change the interior of the space all throughout the day.
The intent of the Wine Towers was to store bottles of wine vertically, and to use a form that best set up expansion allowances. Hexagon shapes allow replication of a shape that fits together without wasted space, and it set up nice connections between one space to another. Wine is celebrated from the prcoess of creation to consumption. So with the wine towers there was a need to celebrate the exprience from arrival, storing, purchasing to leaving. There is a celebrated entrance that draws in customers, and leads them straight to the wine storage. To get to the storage there is a 40â€™ wide platform that transports the customer from wine storage to wine storage. This platform is more of a wine lounge, and allows celebration to be continuous. 7

The form of this design is inhabited by program that supports the community. There are gardens to help push the cultivation of farming that this region is known for, culinary courses that lend a teaching hand with what has been grown on site, art studios for the production of local art, a place to display local art in a elevated gallery, and a theater that shows local talent. On the site located under the bridging connection from the Highland Park mill to the building is a place for a farmer’s market, and a plaza for a place to enjoyment of the culturally developed site.
A design that acts as a conduit for people through a culturally rich environment as they move from one aspect of their daily lives to the next. A cultural center that conveys the importance of community, and sustainable food practices. The site acts as a center to and from the historically renovated highland mill to Charlotte’s uptown. The form of this design replicates the idea of bridging and interweaving areas around the Highland park and NODA.
