ARCH 793B: Architecture Directed Design Research

Gallery: Form Follows Performance

Instructor: Alvin Huang

Can architecture utilize the scale of our infrastructure as an activated space for temporal commercial activities? This architectural intervention of the 1st Street bridge aims to provide a vision for the future of an urban design paradigm shift within the dominant spatial order. Through the redesign of urban aesthetics and integrated adaptability of use within the structural module, the intervention fills a gap in the informal economy that our capitalistic real estate market does not accommodate for.
