Today in section, we started to discuss how we would integrate the systems we learned this semester into our studio projects. In Studio, I have been designing a rehabilitation center for war veterans adjacent to the High Line in New York City. One important aspect of my design is the incorporation of the High Line throughout the housing units and rehabilitation spaces. I have done this through a ribbon separating the two programs which continues throughout the building. This building will not only create view out to the High Line, but it will also allow air to circulate through the building through apertures. It is my intention that this ribbon of space will allow the inhabitants of the structure to be able to interact with the High Line, the harbor, as well as the rest of the city.
