Network (Art & Design Incubator in Houston)

This is a mixed-use art & design incubator project in Houston. The adaptive reuse project will transform the former Coca-Cola bottling plant to establish new places like artist studios, galleries, classrooms, living rooms, cafes, retails, outdoor courtyards, covered plazas, office buildings, and affordable housing.

This design preserves the original complex’s historical and reusable buildings, using linear architectural elements such as linear corridors, canopies, and facades to connect the scattered original buildings and urban street networks, make them become a whole, and let the architecture and city generate dialogue.

Inside the building, we give public functions (cafes, retail, etc) at the intersection of those linear circulations, so that the intersections will serve as a public place for social interaction and chance encounters to draw people in and through the whole new complex.

The art incubator will not only become an incubator for artworks but also provides citizens with a place to live with a cultural atmosphere. As an adaptive reuse project, the new complex will bring a new density of activity and creative life to Houston.
