suckerPUNCH: describe your project:
karli MOLTER: a proposal for a new hotel in tribeca, new york, must respond to the dynamic urban fabric that is in constant flux and shows no sign of decreasing in density or vibrancy. the hotel must accommodate more than the small clientele of visitors who would have the opportunity to frequent, and expose itself to the city, embracing diversity and social interactions.
different systems of shifting geometries have been used to create different qualities of enclosure and planes of inhabitation throughout the hotel. levels of privacy for the individual units are achieved through a build up of several layers of the different systems – both interior and exterior.the arrangement of program is also a result of the technique of shifting elements. a progression of different types of public space are used throughout the hotel to shape the section and inform the organization of the private hotel units.
