MRKT: CUlinary incubation
Spitzer School of Architecture: City College of New York CUNY / Instructor: Joan Krevlin / Design Studio 8
The site: a broken rhythm of frozen harmony. It serves as the threshold between the pixelization of townhouses to the south, and the monotone massiveness of the northern civic buildings. The solution; a market/incubation space. The textured nature of these programs allows for a rush of people coming to interact with the site, attracting them further along the Avenue’s journey, and space for culinary masters to practice their art. The building becomes and extension of Atlantic Avenue; a city within a city. The marriage of craft and collaboration fosters innovation; a Brooklyn staple.
