What this area lacks is a sustained urban community where permanent residents and commuters can interact, a destination point within this dense urban fabric. m i x e d u s e t o w e r.

The tower is comprised of components which can be programmed in a variety of ways for either private or public functions. The resulting structure promotes interaction between the citys various communities at all levels of the urban surround. The tower is an opaque, rectilinear structure, with highly fixed programs around the main office/residential programs. The formal organization of the tower creates several terraces which are utilized for many activities. The envelope of the building is made of glass which opens up in key locations for optimal sunlight and to defend prevailing winds. This building offers unique floor plans (houses stacked in the sky) with articulated surfaces, dramatic cantilevers, profusion of balconies, expanses of glass, and views of Downtown Chicago. Our building challenges the notion of a classic skyscraper image with a proposal of thoughtful, daring, and a dazzling new alternative. The iconic American skyscraper is re-envisioned as a pixilated vertical layering of individually sculpted, highly customized spaces opening its users to the atmosphere. The building introduces new structural capabilities with staggered progression of structural slabs. It is essentially a volume with varying d e g r e e s o f t r a n s p a r e n c y a n d o p a c i t y.

Level 51:
More sets of trusses to aid bridges.

After tiles are dropped in place over growth media, the installation is complete, eliminating the need for landscapers and the labore associated with planting a large roof area. Both remain feasible durable options for addressing sustainable needs for this large commercial project. (B)

smart parking sequence


1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. When the user requests his ticket at the machine the license number is registered. A text display shows him the available transfer area and the assigned transfer area opens. T h e u s e r d r i v e s i n t o t h e t r a n s f e r a r e a a n d p o s i t i o n s t h e c a r a t t h e a v a i l a b l e p a l l e t g u i d e d b y a m i r r o r a n d t e x t d i s p l a y.

The parking procedure begins when the walkways are lowered and the pallet with the car is lowered. It then turns and is placed into the intended storage rack. Once the lift has reached its intended position the occupied pallet is couples with another one. Before pushing the pallets into the storage rack the vertical lift is locked on the steel structure. The storing process is complete and the vertical lift brings the empty pallet to the transfer area. Before the car can be retrieved, the cash machine has to be paid.

The large surface area of the tow Smartglass is located around the perimeter of the building to aid to contrl exposure levels to interior spaces. The diagram above depicts the lack of sun exposure in the interior and lower spaces; primary exposure grows from the exterior/outer spaces and higher levelswhich is why alternating translucencies are proposed into the buildings envelope.

Research shows a high density of design students n the loop area; a dynamic structure with a rectilinear aesthetic was created along with sustainable design features to provide a future example for efficient design solutions.
