YMCA in Coney Island


MIT Spring 2019
Instructors: Mariana Ibañez



The project began with an investigation of a found object, a turtle shell, and the structural intelligence of the shell due to varring thickness of its walls.

The building consists of two walls which are inhabited in three different ways throughout the project: within the thickness, inside and outside. As you move from one floor to the other the relationship between the walls change.
