A Non-Commercial Indoor Public Space -
Urban Culture Forest
The primary thought is to create a metaphor to the
concept of “commercialization” which is the only sole
purpose as of today to the union square and the retail
around it. The energy tower and corridor live in the same
space integrated and elevated and house the non-
commercial focused uses in the program. The integral
purpose of this location and site is to:
Celebrate the deep history of the corridor and union square space
Integrate the new “non-commercial” leisure space within the urban
commercial neighborhood inorder to embrace the city. Energy solution to the corridor incorporating resource effeceint consumption & renewable energy generation by using building integrated photovoltaic panels.
Create a civic identity based on human scale: streets & public spaces
Balance historic character with the new futuristic design to create a harmonious continuity.
