BLT Architects Student Design Competition

This entry won second prize in the BLT Architects annual urban design competition, beating out more than twenty other competitors from other universities across the Northeast. The project brief demanded a mixed residential/retail program in a blighted neighborhood in north Philadelphia. My interpretation was to design a mixture of housing types centered around a common park space, to encourage people with varied backgrounds and income levels to come together in one space and form a community despite their differences. The main features of the project are the commercial arcade linking the main intersection to the common park and the tower which rises out of the arcade facing central Philly and the Amtrak, to act as a beacon for future development.
