For this plaza design, JZMK Partners investigated the dynamics of architecture, urban form and the digital age. The process of subtractive architecture helped to establish the overall concept. The proposal suggests the erosion of the busy street corner and the creation of an architectural form that acts more like sculpture and digital media.

Separated from the building mass, the architecture presents a dramatic release from the existing surrounding street corners. JZMK’s scheme attempts to give this space back to the pedestrian as well as the urban pattern. The design relieves the visual bombardment and softens the scale of the built form.
