| cultural identity vs the west |

[2] studio samples | eco tower + phenomena


|eco tower| university of arizona campus

the university of arizona’s science mall is currently a barren space in which a high traffic of students travel through daily. the university’s planning department proposed to turn the space into a landmark featuring a natural desert landsape to educate visitors on the unique sonoran ecosystem. the project was to propose a design element that would enhance this educational experience. the eco tower serves as a symbol for the new science mall as well as provides visitors with an opportunity to study the landscape from a different perspective. education through observation.


|phenomena| tucson, arizona

this project entails an old abandoned train platform that is to be turned into a space for ‘play’ through the phenomena observed on and around the site. whether it is mimicking the sound of a car engine or extending out their arms for flight, children can bring inanimate objects to life by simply using their imagination. the tunnel allows children to become the train simply by running through. the vibration of the metal floor, the change from light to solid is all controlled by the pace of the child as he/she travels through the tunnel. aside from a place of play, the space also allows for gathering and public activity, thus bringing the old platform back to life.
