Pier 14 School Project
Site : Pier 14, NYC
Instructor: Theoharis David
Pier 14 is located in the financial district, lower manhattan, where is East River in the front and FDR in the back. The iconic photo taken from the site represents the secnario formed by "the frame". The design is inspired by this powerful gesture, trying to speak an architectural language which could form a dynamic framed space, which is the combination of horizontal elements and vertical component.
The site is near the water, the accessibility to open space for students is considered. The design of each room hung in the middle is aim to create a open circulation for experiencing different sptial quality. Lifting the classroom also increases the playground area for students to do exercising and enjoy the play time.
