PROJECT SUMMARY

Evolutionary Infrastructure

Adaptive reuse of a parking structure for cultural activities

This project explores the concept and potential of adaptive post-occupation of unused infrastructure. Using a parking garage the scheme proposes to convert the “found” structure – an “objet trouvé” in the city, so to speak – into a public building hosting a range of cultural activities.

The stacked floors of the garage and its circulation ramp are literally re-used to accommodate new functions.
