PROGRAM_ Urban and Transportation System Design + Train Station.
INSTRUCTORS_ Jesse Reiser. Nanako Umemoto.
SOFTWARE_ Rhino. Grasshopper Plugin. Maya. AutoCAD. Adobe Creative Suite.

DESIGN PERIOD_ June- August 2011.

Speculative design for a high speed railway station for Palmdale, California. A shade canopy is necessary to encourage the development of an urban core in the existing suburban sprawl. Increasing the structural grid of the station to the size of the city causes it to behave as a vast field condition; variable yet unified. Combined, you have an instant city in the middle of the desert.
