Project idea

The idea of this project is to create a new brutalist architecture that is created by repetition of a single element, planes. The planes are repeated to create an interlocking structure, aesthetics, light modifiers, and frame views. A contrast is achieved by having the primary circulation as a sculptured ramp in the center of the project. 

Project description

The programs are placed on several levels based on the busyness of the program: market and retail stores are on the ground floor; culinary classes are on the mezzanine; a youth center looks over the culinary classes; cafes and seating facing the test kitchen on the first level; and fine dining is on the top floor.

Technical information

The construction of the project is using mainly precast concrete panels that interlock.
