This project is the culmination of a semester-long study of a 161 meter wide section of the 606 Trail in Chicago and the proposal of a bathroom (and in my case, an urban playground) on the site. Initially, this meant studying and visualizing not only the digestive system, but water and waste treatment plants as well as everything about ADA accessible bathrooms. From there, I designed an interactive and wheelchair accessible bathroom.
Since I’m also interested in landscape architecture and urbanism, I took it a step further by researching examples of urban playgrounds and skateparks from around the world (15+ countries) and designing my interpretation of a multi-generational and accessible urban playground. It includes a circular basketball court, a skatepark, a rock climbing wall, a Richard Serra-inspired public sculpture space, and more.
