Summer 2016 / Caracas, Venezuela
A structure for the Caracas Community Center was conceived through manipulation of architectural units of my case study, Makoko Floating School, and my partner’s [Nicholas Grime] case study, Sant’Elia Nursery School. The building acts as a literal and metaphorical bridge between the informal settlements of Caracas, Venezuela and the urban center. The shell structure allows the space to be occupied and personalized based on need for market space, language classes, medical treatment or the street itself.
