Urban Efficiency

year: 2011 / at: GSD / studio: Urban Efficiency /

This studio focused on developing housing projects on top of dead space created by large infrastructural projects in Manhattan. My site was the Manhattan-side Holland Tunnel entrance. The site itself consists of four traffic triangles created by the various roads leading down to the tunnel's entrance. The building's scheme was generated by extrapolating floor plates between two extremes: the ground-level traffic islands and the upper-most floor plate of idealized rectilinearity.
