Urban Culture

Urban Culture is not just a general reference to city life, but an industrial plant processing algae biomass from CO2 emissions of autos travelling on the expressway underneath.  In this, the project incorporates one part housing, one part industry, and one part urbanity while exploiting three cyclical themes in its execution- urban flows, green flows, and water flows. 

 

Conceptually, the building is a vector connection between center city and the adjacent northern neighborhoods, and a vertical and horizontal extension of urbanity - an architectural threshold welcoming travelers, visitors, and locals.
