Shared Stories

Shared Stories proposes an architectural metaphor for New York City, itself, through the mapping of three programs, A House, A Subway, and A Nightclub onto a single site in Hunter’s Point, Queens. Structured like the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, the story lines of these three spatial characters, along with the site’s remaining fragments of the historic Long Island City Savings Bank Building, overlap, intertwine, and blur within the project’s physically defined space while its inhabitants interact as neighbors sharing common sensory experiences of the building through the critically detailed “Party Wall,” which frames the architectural moments where sights, sounds, textures, lights and shadows pass between adjacent programs.
