Design Studio 1 with Prof. Vivian Lee
This Makers Market is built out of a modular unit of two intersecting cones and extruded down to create columns. The site is situated in the Junction district of Toronto. A pedestrian could either quickly walk through the center where artists would be able to set up booths or walk through the outer circle where there is a cafe and library. The entrance and exit peel open the shape and reaches from the GO Train station to the garden space to the east.
The artist studio spaces are offset from the cone skylights above allowing for privacy for the artist and ample bright space to work. The theatre space pulls one of the cone skylights to create seating.
