Group Project Collage Building, Music Academy
Remy Mermelstein, B.Arch. 2022
ClassARCH 3101 Design V: Densities
The Collage Building takes inspiration from the different layers and typologies of Rochester, New York, from the single-family home to industrial waterfront buildings and the modern skyscraper. The building combines the different typologies by the action of stacking and explores the different spatial qualities that the “stack” can produce. The program of the building corresponds to its specific typology: the music academy (industrial), sports and leisure (modern), and housing (pitch roof house). The different volumes connect to an experimental performance space, weaving you through the building.
