Fall 2018


  The Brooklyn Navy Yard was a location of machine building that would explore the Terra Incognita of the world. In diagraming how the BNY functioned as a place of outward direction from the dry docks a CrossGrain was informed for a functional future of the spaces. Elevating of the crossgrain would allow for the sea level rise to consume the past that was the old BNY, but for it to remain its new human function above and into Terra Incognita.

  The CrossGrain becomes a space that changes the occupants perspective by using a combination of the elevation and unique sensory development of thought provoking innovations. The path starts the informal scene of sensory input, the shed structure houses the formal space for programmatic devices for innovation. The facade replicates the blurred images from the plane of the ever rising water.
