Thesis Project : Cultural Center, Cleveland, OH

An individual project, our fifth year thesis project had few stipulations. One of those that I remember was that each project approved, despite being likely hypothetical, had to somehow benefit the community in which it stood / took place.
Using an abandoned warehouse / multi-use structure in Downtown Cleveland, Ohio, a re-use was designed to create an interactive cultural center showcasing underground art, music, spoken word and graffiti.

Conceptually the design was based on the user's expression, guiding the use of the building towards being an indication of the city's personality through individual artistic execution.
