Faculty: Gisela Baurmann

The project is the synthesis of three main programs (natatorium, incinerator, and recycling center), and the integration with the existing UPS facility. This is created with three main intentions: urban context and site accessibility, climatic response in formal language and ambiguity of the three programs.

With the intent of blurring the stereotypical boundary between an actively used community space and an industrialized neighborhood, there are seamless interactions in formality. Those moments create a sense of awareness of these typically hidden programs.
