Uncertain Density

The project responds to the issue of emptiness and underutilized land that induces negative migration in South End, Bridgeport. How can one create urban density thus generate social density? The design seeks to create spaces that provide as many options as possible for people to choose where they want to spend their time - indoor, semi-outdoor, outdoor, underground, aboveground, on top of roofs, by nature - under various thermal conditions and at various heights. It also responds to the future of flooding concerns by creating underground carved spaces. It can hold water to reduce pressure in urban infrastructures in times of flooding and heavy rainfalls, whereas providing community sports venues in other times.
