- Multi-family residential with Market
- 2934 Russell Street, Detroit, MI
- Fall 2019 / Group work
The Oculus Garden is a multi-family residential towers replacing a Shed 4 of the Eastern Market in Detroit and a public parking structure. The project aims at creating a community that enhances the eastern market as an existing cultural asset, positioning this space such that it becomes economically competitive and welcoming, while at the same time being environmentally responsible and beneficial to the local community. Following the proposal, we enable our project to socially integrate the communities at different scales through applying the concept of flexibility, and to create a spatial synergy among the market, parking (car show of Detroit) and the residential spaces through lifting the parking space while doubling the amount of green space.
