Arch 215 Architectural Drawing/ Design Theory 2
Professor Rose Anne Kings
Orange Coast College Fall 2013

Duration: 6 weeks
Nature: individual assignment/ competition submittal

This is the final project of the class and a competition submittal. The competition explores the idea of renovating an existing building for public use as a mean of bringing new life and vitality to an urban community.

The existing building is an abandoned YMCA building that can potentially become a cultural center for downtown Santa Ana. In order to bring vitality back, I need to promote “green” architecture and give the public a mixed program including a cafe, a library, a gallery, artist studio that every person of different backgrounds and ages can use.
