Thesis Design Project

For my senior thesis, I choose to design an urban winery in Long Island City, NY in an effort to contribute to the economic development of the area. The goal of this 85,000 sq.ft. facility is to bring a sense of community to the neighborhood while preserving its history through a state of constant change. To achieve this, areas are incorporated throughout the space where members of the community can interact and exchange ideas (internet /social lounge), as well as contribute to the community (community maintained garden) while enjoying wine. Wine acts as the medium between the current community members and new residents to bond through wine tasting sessions and wine making classes.
