The project will be a hybrid structure under the Manhattan Bridge. The new program combines culture (a Chinese Culture Museum) and infrastructure (a bus terminal for the Chinatown bus services). It embraces the Manhattan Bridge, a piece of infrastructure cutting into the New York City grid splitting Chinatown in two. My goal is to create a structure that embodies the relationship between the city with its infrastructure and a civil program by strategically placing the project on a site in New York City where disruption of the existing urban condition is created by the Manhattan Bridge.
Status: School Project
