Using mainly grasshopper to help first produce an aggregate that eventually ate away at a monolith, my partner and I designed a headquarters for the MTBA. The site is located next to Little Tokyo and in the lot in front of an Office Depot. Due to its close proximity to the Metrolink station that was across the street, we had wanted to focus our efforts on creating a pedestrian friendly site. The facade was structured so that steel tension cables would be attached to a frame that would allow for people to use as a bike rack. Mostly the ground floor was dedicated to bikes with three area where the building touched down as the corporate infiltration.
