New Media Centre
Instructors: Jeremy Ficca, Wolfgang Spengler
March - May 2017
6 week project from researching "new media" to designing the centre for the users.
Located in East Liberty, Pittsburgh, the new media centre consists of three parts: the galleries and learning spaces, the office space for three start-up firms, and the restaurant.
My main focus was on allocating these three main groups of spaces within the site. Essentially the centre is comprised on different rectangles extruded upwards at different heights. Although the function of each space is different, they are connected through the main lobby accessible with two long staircases facing each other.
Each specific space is given its allocated area based on occupancy calculations. A more detailed materials & assembly drawing was done for this project.

Materials & Assembly
An analysis of the design was done after, which required adjustments to be made to meet code regulations. A detailed assembly of the glass facade for the office space was made as well.
