Conceptual Digital model

Testing the lighting of a space that is exposed but below grade.

Proposed Parking Exit.
This layout will force drivers to make a decision of either exiting to Sussex Dr. OR York St. before surfacing. The result of this will be less congestion on the ground level.
The two spiral ramps will create a circle opening bringing light to the lower levels. The Sprial will continue as a sculptural contraption that will house solar panels and generate electricity for the underground parking.

An example of a similar structure canbe seen in Toyo Ito's Tower of Winds located in Yokohama, Kanagawa. Equipt with high tech electrical sensors and lights, the illuminations react to changes in the immediate surroundings.

Conceptual sketches showing breakdown of programmatic uses that run perpendicular to
York St.
The height of the excavation is also taken into account and the issue to address is, whether cars using York St. should be visible or invisible.
The horizontal breakdown of program will ease the visual disruption of the hotel across the street to pedestrians inside the proposed building.
