DESIGN STATEMENT | This project explores the Highline as a void in the city of New York. This void leaks into the building on the Highline level. The void grows into the building as triangulated framework that expands vertically into the building. This triangulated surface represents the circulation from the Highline into the building. By bringing a similar experience that one encounters while walking down the Highline into the inside of the building, the theater, along with other program spaces become the solids in contrast with the triangulated void that forms the circulation. Vertically, the building starts as a more enclosed mass and as it lines up with the Highline, it gradually transforms into a more open and public based experience.
PROJECT LOCATION | Manhattan, New York
