52 CROSBY


James A. Williams, Associate AIA


52 Crosby BUILDING TYPE: Mid-Rise Housing LOCATION: New York, New York PROFESSOR: Gregory Palermo


52 Crosby BUILDING TYPE: Mid-Rise Housing LOCATION: New York, New York PROFESSOR: Gregory Palermo The core concept behind 52 Crosby, was to provide as many units with access to day lighting and ventilation on both the East and West ends of the unit. Through the use of a modular unit the circulation was adapted to each individual floor, privileging the lifestyle within the unit over a strict repetition.

Main exhibit entrance As one enters the exhibit from the ground floor, they begin a journey, winding up the ramps. Natural lighting is used to enhance the transition from the start, in the belly of the building and then climbing to the contrasting perimeter of the building.

Rotating exhibit This is the single path that diverges off of the main exhibit and is used to facilitate rotating exhibits.

Final Sequence The exhibit culminates to a final space with the natural lighting coming from above a gesture to what is to come. Taking the light from the side, a surface within arms reach, articulates a continuation of innovation.

Physical Music

This Canvas Cube was a project used to explore the relationship between “Jazz� and a physical embodiment, and then retain a physical recording of that performance.


Claimed Space

Designed for a section on the Big Dig in Boston, the stepping structure is used to provide what once was interrupted by entrance and exit ramps , a continues pedestrian-scape. The surface, responding to surfacing vehicles, creates an new typology along the Big Dig with its stepping terraces.
