Description/Abstract

"Throughout time, suburban sprawl has nullified the town center through the creation of satellite centers which cater to specific architectural typologies, programs, and demographic groups. The contention of this project is that the lost city center is an integral part of urban life, both architecturally and socially. A center shall be reestablished through combining typologically unrelated programs and urban conditions, while also bringing together otherwise isolated social groups."
