Tower Grove Mixed Use Project

Tower Grove Mixed Use Project
Architecture 412, Professor Iain Fraser
Washington University in St. Louis, Spring 2009

  Tower Grove, once a vibrant neighborhood of St. Louis is now mostly an unkempt and abandoned area. It once was a cultural home to the St. Louis music scene, very popular duing the 1950s and 1960s. This mixed use housing project was implemented as an incremental architectural revitalization.
This particular project embraces the musical heritage of St. Louis, bringing back jazz bars and incorporating a small boutique theater. Furthermore retail spaces, office spaces, and a large restaurant are in place to restore the nightlife feel of the Tower Grove Neighborhood.
The twisting design was to provide each of the residences a unique view and access to sunlight. It also incorporated a translucent polycarbonate panelling system to allow the transmission of light into the residences while also shielding it from the harshness of the sun.
Drawings are graphite on heavyweight paper.
Models are Basswood, plexiglass, and honeycomb board
