Exploded Isometric Drawing

This project identifies underbuilt locations near Broadway to house residual programs—defined as programs whose operations are restricted to the public domain of the sidewalk—eg. street vendors or local food markets. The intention is to mirror the program within these underbuilt locations (single story supermarkets, theaters, and restaurant/bars) along with a vertical expansion of the pavement as a means of drawing the residual programs into these new spaces. The extension of the pavement aims to densify the pedestrian grid along Broadway. Mirrored programs intend to operate as public spaces with a soft interiority to be operated informally by inhabitants. The architecture uses brick as a module of construction from the existing building and the paver block as a module of circulation from the pavement and seeks to bridge the gap between them creating a potential for circulation-inhabitation spaces.
