CLASS PROJECT FOR LSU ARCHITECTURE
Through an analysis of the Tiber River and its connection to the surrounding community, it became apparent that there was a strong disconnection between the historical river and its context. The intention of this design was to bring the importance of the river back to the area and inspire activity along the river bank, which is currently deserted. By creating four entries from street level down the the river, it makes the area more inviting and meaningful. These four entrances are formed by four current axises created by the neighboring streets and buildings. As the entries create a path of activity to the river, they also stand for a chance to recognize the importance of the river. A tower is located at each axis and serves to benefit the community by holding a museum about the river. This is a great opportunity for citizens to rediscover the river and bring its activity back to life.
