Ice Tower
year: 2010
Location: Boston, MA
advisor: Andrew Scott
description: The Ice Tower is an adaptive-reuse project of an 8 story abandoned ice tower in Boston's industrial district, for the location of a new design collective of artists, architects, fabricators, and industrial designers. This duality was something that could be tangibly realized. So to keep the power, simplicity, and verticality of the existing mass, the addition is treated as a new fundamentally different volume suspended within.

The project then begins to speak about the old and the new, where the old retains its mass and heaviness--a receptacle, an image. The new becomes this new lighter emerging entity that rises from the top of the original building.
