Midway Senior Thesis: Live_Work Community, Spring 2015

  • This posting is my midway process of my Senior Thesis Capstone at Philadelphia Univeristy Spring 2015. The project I am developing is a Live_Work Community. The project is located in Manyunk on Leverington Avenue. The site includes three old mills, a parking garage, parking lot, and outside communal area
     
    Mission:
    A live-work community that will promoite the integration and collaboration of multiple design disciplines through communal studio and gallery spaces. The idea is also to unify the Manayunk community and designers through public programs such as open galleries, a gym, and restaurant.
     
    Concept:
    To create a space that expresses and reflects the creativity of the user. This will be accomplished through the use of archetectonic structures to further unify three individual spaces to one cohesive sommunity that will be come a prototype.
