PROJECT SUMMARY

Responsive urban downtown activity center

The new YMCA is located on a bisecting garden and path that meanders through the city’s heart. The Responsive urban downtown activity center continues this existing green space with a program of fitness, cultural and housing elements.

Energy from all activities (e.g. a jogger) can be collected to then power the infrastructure on-site (e.g. path lighting).
