Exquisite Corpse

Design II / Fall 2022
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Astor Place, New York City
Professor Nima Javidi

This concept for Astor place at the heart of the East Village proposes a volumetric boolean between a public promenade and private short-stay rooms. The promenade seamlessly attaches the subway entrance, Astor Place Plaza, an ascending public staircase, a bathhouse and an exhibition hall into a malleable figure inside a rigid shell, only revealing its hinted peculiarities to an interior seam.

Beginning with a collage-montage of public voids within the building envelope mass, the design evolved through sculpting the connected voids as a figure absorbing the roles of entrance, circulation, communal space skylight.
