F'13 Studio: Lindsey May & Claire Thomas

This project was an athletic squash facility for children from middle school to high school. The students participated in athletic training and academic help after school. The building's interior provided a safe, inward-facing space for athletics and academics. On the other hand, the building's exterior provided a public space for the community. The project gave the majority of the site to the community as a public park. This park was connected to a series of nearby parks by a bridgeway that was an extension of the building's roof. In other words, a walking path allowed the public to occupy and cross over on top of the building's roof to cross into to a series of nearby parks. Additionally the building provided a covered outdoor program area for the park. This covered area housed a small cafe, a walking path, and bleacher seating.
