325_Dan Whelan: Sanctuary for the Harrowed

Submission #325 | Dan Whelan: Sanctuary for the Harrowed — “Since the beginning of human existence, people have been crafting spaces to house the processes of life and the inevitable event of death. These spaces range from monumental to economical, and display a vast array of cultural indicators, such as status and religion.

188_Georgia Pogas: A Spectacular Spectacle is Spectacular

Submission #188 | Georgia Pogas: A Spectacular Spectacle is Spectacular — "Resilience is defined as a way to accommodate risk. In terms of a skate park, resiliency tends to be lacking, as it is rendered useless until touched by a skater. As soon as a skater touches an object in the site, it immediately becomes essential to the skater’s functionality. Without the skater, the park is reduced to a field of follies. To the bystander or the spectator, a skate park is difficult to navigate, therefore, it is deemed weak in nature. "

91_Andres Roncal: Grand Hall Freshman Dormitory

Andres Roncal: Grand Hall Freshman Dormitory — "The proposed program is meant to burst the bubble in which Pratt students are forced to live in and give public space back to the landscape of the city. By mapping the public parks around the area it became evident that there were only two public parks available to the immediate community. Fort Green Public Park and Pratt Institute's Sculpture Park; the latter gated and limited to no public access. This segregation was reflected in the lack of understanding for the students to their surroundings which then increased the naive self exposure to crime in the area."
