The Creative Quad
Building on the Edge: A Vibrant Entry into the Neighborhood
Using two existing structures to “piggyback” new programmatic and economic interventions, the Creative Quad creates a youth center at the entrance edge of the neighborhood. The new structure features a skateboard shop on the ground retail floor. The upper level functions as an art studio where neighborhood youth can work with artists to create their own unique skateboard designs. The large open space of the neighboring warehouse functions as an indoor skatepark and a skateboard manufacturing plant. The final reused old brick building is a sound studio with a record shop cafe at the front.
