Alone by Edgar Allen Poe from childhood’s hour I have not been, as others were—I have not seen as others saw—I could not bring, my passions from a common spring— from the same source I have not taken, my sorrow—I could not awaken my heart to joy at the same tone— and all I lov’d—I lov’d alone— then—in my childhood—in the dawn, of a most stormy life—was drawn from ev’ry depth of good and ill, the mystery which binds me still— from the torrent, or the fountain— from the red cliff of the mountain— from the sun that ’round me roll’d, in its autumn tint of gold— from the lightning in the sky, as it pass’d me flying by— from the thunder, and the storm— and the cloud that took the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue), of a demon in my view—

It houses loud social activities. The platform contains living and working programs, creating quiet apartments for families. Private offices, classrooms, and a library are arranged along the park. The two buildings relate through four meter divided sections that celebrate a descent into the park. These walls are broken through circulation, mixeduse facilities and/or social programs. Four cores, reflected in both buildings, hold primary circulation.
