I work at Curtis + Ginsberg Architects LLP designing affordable, Passive House certified housing in New York City.
Art Yard! creates a vibrant public plaza by merging performance venues, artist studios, and incubator space with 100% affordable housing in New York City.
The design was driven by three main objectives:
Maintain an efficient structural logic
Establish a datum between the art spaces below and the housing above
Provide abundant natural light for the spaces
Structural piers allow for simple bearing wall construction
Slight rotations emphasize the datum between the public and residential spaces
Folds in the piers reflect different angles of light and act as a playful gesture toward dance.
Artist live-work studios line a public plaza that provides a pedestrian passageway on a long city block.
Primary contributions include concept development, facade design, commercial and community facility design, and renderings.
