Carrie Furnaces (2016)

Carrie Furnaces is the last standing historic iron mill in Pittsburgh, PA, located in Braddock and Rankin, along the Monongahela River.  In a team of six, the full studio, we conceptualized and designed an approach for transforming Carrie Furnaces, into a commemorative museum and park. My specific contribution, in addition to the class-collaboration charrette, is Carrie's event space. In the proposal, the Powerhouse's roof is partially removed, along with its top row of currently bricked-windows. Minimal, modular interventions were placed into the space to be rearrangeable for any occasion:
chairs, tables, plants, lights, cloth sails.
