Mixed Use Building
Providing Connection Through a Populated Pedestrian Corridor
The goal of this project is to connect Highlandtown and Greek Town. A major obstacle is the proposed red line light rail that will pass in the middle of the site. To address this obstacle, I created two green roof courtyards that are raised above the rails.
Around these courtyards, I placed double-loaded corridor buildings and single-loaded corridor buildings. The double-loaded corridors are unique in that the walking surface is suspended to allow light and air to pass throughout the corridor, a luxury most double-loaded corridors lack.
