Modular Streetscape

This project located at 77 Vermilyea Avenue in Inwood is an attempt to create a new prototype of communal space while solving the issue of sidewalk scaffolding in New York City. The design starts from a canopy-shaped prototype that replaces the original form of scaffolding. Then it evolves into different forms that accommodate residents’ activities like barbecues, chess-playing, reading, etc. These multifunctional molecular structures, therefore, form a streetscape that responds to the two facets of street life in that area – of residents and of construction workers.
