I propose to design a structure that will serve to not only create a new space, but also protect, enhance, and revitalize a forgotten structure of old. Through the ideas of commensalism, transference, complicity, coupling, cutting, enjambements, and coverings I will explore different techniques solve the above stated problem. Through these explorations, I hope to use a variety of techniques that can be used to revitalize, protect, and even enhance different structures. I will revitalize a specific forgotten structure using my own architectural aesthetic and understanding of the site and techniques to not only benefit the building, the surrounding area, but also the communitiy.
