Broadway Stories: ‘The One'
My proposal, focused on the creation of an interior economy within One Times Square, was conceived through the analysis of the anatomy of the human body and an octopus as a design metamorphosis. By investigating the movement and genetic material of these creatures, I created a case study that could be used to generate design iterations that responded to and engaged with existing structural conditions. I utilized this study in One Times Square, in both plan and section respectively and while working around the presence of a 3 level Walgreens, to generate the layouts of both a Walgreens-affiliated pharmaceutical research laboratory and nightclub, aptly titled ‘The One’. These two spaces would create a circular economy that would fund research aiding in resolving the opioid crisis, in which Walgreens has been held liable in court as a key instigator.
