The Urban Living Room

This project explores how to create public space within an urban context. To engage the public on the human scale, a relationship is made between how people gather together in the urban context and at what scales this happens. This relationship is studied in the broader context and then focused to the actualities of site and program. By creating a series of gathering spaces or “pauses” in the urban fabric, people are encouraged to stop and meet with one another. Public space is created as a pause- a counterpoint to the usual fast pace of the downtown experience.
