Tobacco Warehouse

Tobacco Warehouse

Critic: Brennan Buck

YSoA, fall 2010

The Tobacco Warehouse has been reduced to only its brick shell. Located on the Brooklyn waterfront, we were asked to insert performance space and art galleries within the shell as part of a larger reinvigoration of the waterfront.

The existing park outside the brick walls is extended into the site with an inclined pedestrian landscape. My strategy was to use the existing walls as pivots for new walls to create a series of ramps up the building. A web of structure creates landscape of juxtaposing elements of its industrial nature as a man-made landscape next to the organic one it connects with.
