Terminal Conditions Final Projects.
Some images from the final projects in Terminal Condition, the Spring 2012 Netlab studio that was taught by Kazys Varnelis and Leigha Dennis, in which they set out to rebuild the Port Authority Bus Terminal, while plotting what the city of 2070 might be like.
In Varnelis web-site we can read:
This studio explores the re-construction of a large-scale infrastructural element in the city, specifically the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City. A structure of 1.5 million square feet, passed through daily by hundreds of thousands of commuters, over seven thousand buses, and thousands of automobiles, providing parking for over 1,000 spaces for automobiles on top, surmounting a subway below, linked to the Lincoln Tunnel through massive ramps for vehicular traffic, and accommodating a significant shopping area, the PABT operates in a realm between building, city, and infrastructure. We are interested in this overlap as a venue for experimentation in programming and design.
