CROWN STREET LIBRARY/MARKET CENTER
The site is a parking lot located on Crown Street, downtown New Haven. More than 80 percent of surrounding are restaurants and residential buildings. However, there is a lack of a social gathering space. So I am proposing a program that combining library and market space.
By carving into the plaza, created more space for shop, market, restaurant, cafe and outdoor gathering space.The form of the building is a twist of the cube, in order to create view to both the plaza and the street.
