ENVIRONMENT

THE SEED

Philadelphia Recreation Centers are in the unique position to provide comprehensive services to the neighborhoods they serve and the environments they inhabit. However, the current facilities are often isolated from their surroundings with walls and fencing that inhibit interaction with community and environment.

ENGAGEMENT

Philly Sprout proposes to break open the Tustin Recreation Center and engage it with its surroundings through a series of programmatic strategies that can be repeated across the other 160+ Recreation Centers. These strategies promote three objectives: Improve Access, Connect Community with Environment, and Teach Through Participation.

INFRASTRUCTURE GRID RECLAIMED PIERS FOR SEATS

Mutually-beneficial processes and infrastructure synchronize social and natural cycles. These interactions simultaneously improve municipal service and create a healthier environment for the whole of Philadelphia.

GROWTH

TUSTIN RECREATION CENTER Serving the Overbrook Neighborhood

SCALABLE EFFECT Recreation Centers are among the most visible municipal buildings and landscapes in the city. Recreation Center land makes up an astonishing 1.3%* of the total land area of Philadelphia. When added to park land, 10.1%*, there is huge potential to connect the city of Philadelphia with environmental processes. Everything from bird habitats, geothermal heating and cooling, community composting, and storm water management could be implemented on a city-wide scale. NO VISIBILITY

RETA

The Tustin Recreation Center was chosen for this investigation because it best exemplifies what were found to be the most common challenges for Recreation Centers city-wide.

DISCONNECT FROM NEIGHBORHOOD

WALL

Walls and fences present a blank face to the neighborhood. With only four entrances to the site, limited access discourages both planned and spontaneous uses.

RETA

CONFINING BUILDINGS

The current facility has a solid foundation, but simple fixes, such as taller operable windows, barn doors, and new entrances, can give new life to old spaces.
