Description/Abstract

"Traditionally, public buildings sit as monuments in a city and can be read as objects in a public space or boundaries surrounding it. There is often little interaction between the building and the site. I am proposing a new town hall located on a public plaza that will deal with connecting the building to the space it sits within. I will show how the ideas initially incorporated in New England town halls, up until the mid 1800's, can be investigated and reinterpreted to form a coherent unified system of built form and designed landscape."
