Another collaboration of ideas

After discussing the site's relationship to the street level and the 'L', we agreed that we needed to design an effective sound buffer for the train, and create a moment where the building has a direct connection to the street corner. Since the northwest corner is the area with the least amount of natural light, we chose to make that corner the highest point of the roof scape, and insert a light well that would reach to the lowest level. After a desk crit with our instructor Karl, we also decided to move the public spaces on top of the classrooms and hallways, mainly for structural support.

Were able to meet our goals for the building by working simultaneously on a physical study model.
