Re- establishing Thresholds

The studio discourses on the concept of self-contained neighborhoods, a concept emerging and important during the on-going pandemic. The three components focused on are grocery store zone, small public space, and street edge. The intend of the design is to reconfigure the interface between the built and the unbuilt so as to enhance the experience, create a safe and suitable environment for an individual on the street. The project also reflects the understanding that the street does not only act as a connector between two locations but also is a container where everyday life happens.
