Aiming to link Harlem’s daily life and diverse cultural heritage to Columbia University, the project is located at the most dynamic stairway on the central axis. Boxes are designed as containers to support daily activities for Columbia communities while recording the everyday life of Harlem.

Four maps related to the food, art, music, and historical building are set on the eight boxes as puzzles. By moving around the boxes, people can actively explore the miniature Harlem. At the same time, the volumes can turn into small tables or shelves for people during their break.

During the daytime, materials with different textures and colors are used to guide the puzzles, enabling people to participate in the interaction. Pockets are designed to place in iPhones as lighting sources. The translucency of the materials makes them possible to explore during nighttime as well.
