Description
This was a student project by Jinkyung Park for John Kelleher's ARCH 442 course, Winter 2007.
"Owner (Tribune): Tribune company's mission is to 'inform and entertain their consumers in the ways, places and times they want'". Tribune desires to be everywhere, providing 24/7 entertainment to their readers, listeners, and watchers. To do so, they need more production spaces such as broadcasting studios.
City (urban): As number of commuters and tourists to the city of Chicago increase, the city needs more public spaces with better public transportation service in downtown area. Revival of a tram station and outdoor public event spaces in towers are one of the solutions to suggest.
Architect (myself): My idea of tower design has shifted from verticality to horizontality. The traditional "BASE" is lifted up in the air, to provide entertainment spaces in new dimensions. Accommodating needs of Urban and Tribune is the most important design criteria in the project." -- Jinkyung Park
