Brooklyn YMCA | Core Studio II

As an institution the YMCA operates to forward the agenda of urban elites while simultaneously providing educational, recreational and health services to those who most need it. The project works with the duality embedded in the YMCA through subtle geometric operations on linear elements embedded in the landscape and oriented to the East River. With minute rotations and shears, broad surface planes hinge to unsuspectingly create volume for cellular support programs while simultaneously defining spaces of circulation and activity.
